At the top of Petite Gorge

At the top of Petite Gorge

When one climbs Petite Gorge, one passes at the end of this route in the bottom of a deep groove that is parallel to the Salève face. This groove that is seen in the picture is a visible part of a huge fracture, called diaclasis, that runs on the whole length of Salève face. This one is notably apparent at Aiguille de la Mule and at Grande Arête.

This section of the route is called Jacob’s ladder, since one really gets the feeling to climb to the sky.
