The Salève mountain ridge is located in the foothills of the Savoy Alps, in the Haute-Savoie department of France. Despite its location in France, it is considered Geneva's local mountain, as it towers in the immediate vicinity.
The new topo of the Salève has been published. It was compiled by Jean-Marie Boimond. An extraordinary achievement!
Almost 360 pages describe the entire Salève (except "Super Canapé") and the rocks around Mount Vuache (between Bellegarde and the Salève), including Léaz, which is very close by. There is also a sector for dry-tooling and one for ice climbing. Included sectors of the Salève: "Petit Salève", "Gorges", the massif of the "Coin", the "Étiollets et Buttikofer", the various sectors of the upper Salève, the "Pointe du Plan". In addition, there are four other rocks closer to Bellegarde: Chaumont, Le Malpas (called "Rocher Bataillard" in this topo), Vovray and Léaz (in the department of Ain).
All routes, paths and accesses are recorded on photos. In the climbing guide, the following information is given for each route: Course, name, rating, name of outfitter/developer with year, and the note if the route has been re-equipped. Most routes have a short commentary that is not always climbing related but humorous.
