Climbing - Mérite Sportif

The Mérite Sportif crag, straddled by the Dar waterfall, is situated right opposite the road. Here you'll find some great single-pitch routes, mainly on the yellow rock. The climbing style is more challenging on the vertical sometimes overhanging rough strata.

Just before the Col du Pillon, on the Vaud side coming from Les Diablerets, on the right side of the road, you'll see a massive wall swallowed up by a waterfall. This wall consists of vertical to overhanging sections. Climbing this crag is challenging but rarely binary. Note that this yellow rock remains dry even in heavy rain. To reach it, from the Col du Pillon car park, take the path to the Via Ferrata, then the path crosses a field and comes to the bottom left of the cliff. Walk along the base of the wall. About a 15-minute walk.
