BAYCHON


Baychon (pronounced 'Byshon') is an extensive set of buttresses in a secluded but accessible valley. The crags aren't very popular but there is a lot of good climbing here with most grades (except the easiest) catered for. The three most popular buttresses are listed here - the rest of the routes are listed in the local guidebook.
