This multi-pitch route on Paré de Joux is along the right bank of the Grand Crêt coomb (viewer's left), and has the quickest and easiset approach when parking at Les Confins. Topping out at 2167 m, this is one of the finer routes of the area.
The Tour du Jalouvre ("Tour" means "Tower", 1988 m) is a sub-peak of the Pic du Jalouvre (2408 m), a popular summit for hikers. High-quality climbing of moderate difficulty, this southeast-facing area dries quickly, allowing early-season climbing.
The "Aiguille Noire de Tardevant" tops out at 2232 meters. This "Matterhorn of the Aravis Mountains" ("aiguille" means "spire") separates the Tardevant and Grande Forclaz coombs (gullies). Fantastic northeast-facing limestone routes.
