Hi Asher, There certainly are fixed ropes on the Dent du Géant but none that you can attach a jumar too. The ropes are very wide and mainly for pulling on with your hands. However, many climbers wrap a sling around the rope much like a prusik which is some added security in case of a fall. Hope that helps, Dave
