Grotte Chevalier, Réseau de la Dent de Crolles
« on: September 29, 2018, 06:09:18 pm »
I have been informed by Gilbert Bohec that the entrance to Grotte Chevalier is in a very unstable condition, and is prone to being blocked. Those of you have been there may remember that the entrance is a steep slide down over frost-shattered scree which almost reaches the roof. I suspect that is the problem area.

The Spéléo Secours Isère recommend that the entrance be checked before the classic through trip from Trou du Glaz is attempted.

Also, the Col du Coq road remains blocked on the St. Pierre de Chartreuse side, which doesn't help the logistics of  trips from the plateau to Grotte du Guiers Mort, and is likely to be so at least until next summer. I'll post on here when it is open again.
