1 Day

May - Nov




* Enjoy the stunning scenery of Dents de Lanfon and the Lake Annesy Basin.

* Get the chance to see wildlife such as ibex, eagles and chamoi on the climb.

* Take a refreshing dip in the lake after a hot day of climbing.


Rising to 1,824 meters in elevation and towering over the shores of Lake Annecy, the Dents de Lanfon have long been a coveted summer climbing destination.

Sitting on the left bank of Lake Annecy, this  lace-shaped cliff is visible from much of the basin and provides stunning views throughout the valley and over the surrounding mountains as well.

Beginning from the little commune of Alex (848 meters), we will enjoy a scenic approach, making our way through the basin.

At the first pass, we will make a steep ascent that involves short sections of climbing until we arrive at the top of the dents and enjoy panoramic views of our surroundings.

We will then proceed to climb from that first overlook up to the top of the central dents. The entire traverse is quite scenic, but the views from the top are especially good.

This trip will involve climbing along some exposed ridge line as well as some rope travel. Therefore, it is best for strong hikers with some previous mountaineering experience.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and scenic 1-day traverse of the Dents de Lanfon, near Lake Annecy!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 1-day off-piste skiing trip around Chamonix!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

After living for 20 years in the south Alps I moved in Annecy, here I like to be close to many world famous ski resorts... La Clusaz, Chamonix, Megève, Flaine.

In winter I like to find the best ski conditions according to my guest level and the mountains conditions. I also enjoy crossing to Italia for a good powder session or climbing an icefall.

In summer I am guiding around Chamonix but also rockclimbing and canyoning.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
