L’Aiguille de Braitaz summit

    La Chapelle-d'Abondance

    The Aiguille de Braitaz which dominates the valley and the homonymous chalets is a “wild” mountain, not crossed by paths.

    Its highest point is accessible from the Col de Braitaz (also known as Col de Conches) by semi-rocky semi-grassy slopes without traces and relatively steep. It is also possible, but in roped climbing, to cross all the ridges from the Outannaz pass to the Aiguille itself which culminates south of the link.
