Walk through pasture to view impressive summit cliffs. Summiting Dent de Crolles means walking around a ledge system on the southern cliffs to incredible views of the Perquelin valley and Saint Pierre de Chartreuse. Trou du Glaz is an entrance to the Dent de Crolles cave system. There are cables for climbing near here but the ascents are not technical.

Nice views from the rim. involves some minor climbing, what makes more interesting.
