Description

The Lanfon's Teeth (Dents de Lanfon in french) are a major summit overlooking Annecy lake in Haute-Savoie. Like the Matterhorn cultimating above Zermatt or the Drus above Chamonix, they dominate the Annecy region and offer to those who reach the summit an exceptional view over the magnificent Annecy lake.

To enjoy these beautiful panorama, we will cross from south to north. This route is accessible to all since you like to move in nature, you are not afraid to walk 6 hours and the vertiginous atmosphere does not scare you. Sometimes, the route taken requires that we "use our hands", that is to say that we do a little rock climbing. A little further, we will also have to pass a section equipped with a cable. But do not worry, the rest of the crossing is a great route on a ridge, straddling two sides.

Program

  • Transport to Planfait aboce Talloires, the starting point of the adventure.
  • We will begin the approach with a good warm up on a forest trail. We will then move on pastures to reach the Col des Frêtes.
  • From there, our ascension can really begin. We will climb the South Pass by the cable section. Then, place to the famous crossing of the Lanfon Teeth. We will climb to the main summit, located at the altitude of 1824 meters.
  • Up there, we will take the time to relax with a picnic. We will take the opportunity to contemplate the beautiful landscapes.
  • We will then begin the descent with a "secret" abseil. This will allow us to avoid the normal route (not very pleasant because stony).
  • We will continue the descent by taking a path very little marked, which will allow us to join the main climbing trail.
  • Back to the vehicles, then to Annecy lake.
