A panoramic view of Le Mirror d'Argentine.


Le Miroir d'Argentine is a expansive limestone face over 1500ft high well over a mile long. It displays a vast wealth of geological features and it is host to a large array of climbs of a wide spectrum of difficulty. There are the gradually easing climbs of the Mirror proper while Cheval Blanc to the west and Haute Corde to the east play host to more vertical and varied climbing.

Getting There 

Drive to the village of Solalex

From the parking lot in Solalex, follow the path across a "bridge" over the river. Continue the path up across a flat field before continuing into the forest and beginning a short approach to the base of the cliff.
