Aiguille Croche is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.398m (7,867ft) above the sea level, located on the Savoie and Haute-Savoie border, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps. The climb will test your fear of heights.
The road to the summit, located within the Beaufortain Massif, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s a very bumpy ski-lift service road ending at 40 metres below the Aguille at the top of a ski lift. The road is impassable in winters. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides.
Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. It’s occasionally very steep, but quiet, beautiful, and high. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. The entire track is quiet and super scenic – with the Mont Blanc massif as well as other mountains dominating the views. The higher the better for views.
