Rock climbing Beaufort school "Roger Frison-Roche"
Enjoy the site's 17 routes in complete safety, ranging from 3a to 6a +. An ideal place to discover the practice, from 6 years old, and to prepare for the massive cliffs of the massif. The cliff is very well equipped (a pin sealed every meter), perfect for learning to climb in the lead. A picnic table awaits you at the foot of the tracks. When arriving in Beaufort from Albertville, the cliff is clearly visible to the left of the road at the entrance to the village, just before the swimming pool.
La Pierra Menta, mythical rock climbing
After a beautiful hike as an approach walk, emblematic and exceptional cliffs open up to you, with the Pierra Menta as a highlight. This characteristic “pebble”, planted in the middle of the Beaufortain massif, is a characteristic sign that we will not miss and a real invitation to climb!
La Pierra Menta has around twenty climbing routes on its sides, including the mythical “Voie des Parisiens” or “Le bonheur des autres”. Its vertiginous north ridge can be climbed in a handful of lengths, each as magnificent as the next. It allows to come out on its top in an aesthetic way. To chain lengths without the approach walk, the Presset Hut offers a perfect base camp to stay at the foot of the tracks.
Small monolith of attitude, we will appreciate going out on this beautiful summit, a bit like on the back of a gigantic elephant. A relaxing setting and a magnificent view.Philippe Mussato, Routes of a spoiled climber
