We propose you to climb in Chamonix during 5
days, all include.
You already climbing confidently under security
of a belay to a level of 5c and yet you dream of discovering
the Haute Montagne? If yes, let us be your guide to the next
Not only does the Aiguilles Rouges offers an ideal terrain
for climbing beautiful parois but it also provides the opportunity
to develop a certain amount of autonomy in your climbing. We
will walk in the footsteps of the big names of alpinisme, such
as Rebuffat, who established the first ascents in the Mon Blanc
Rock climbing school in Brévent
and Frison-Roche route , 200 m, 5c max
We meet in central Chamonix and afer introductions we
take the Brevent cable car to the top where we will find
a climbing school with plenty of granite. This morning
we spend warming up on the granite, climbing cracks and
practicing placing chocks. In the afternoon we use these
techniques for a “modern” route on the Brevent
(2525m). The route is already a fine introduction to climbing
in the Haute Montange an offers a good length and a chimney.
Arête Sud de l’Aiguille de
la Glière ( 2663 m), 400 m, 5a maximum.
Today we take on one of, if not the classic route in
the Aiguilles Rouges. This long and beauiful ridge presents
us with the opportunity to “play” with the
rope and our line. You will learn to advance on the move
and develop a rhythm whilst still maintaining security.
This is an ideal terrain to develop your “mountain
Voie Perroux, 260 m, 5c maximum, Aiguille
de l’Index (2595 m ).
Now it is ime for you to go in front. Despite this route
being very well equiped it still keeps its “Haute
Montagne” character with plenty of room between
the each anchor point ! You will need to add your own
protection (friends, chocks, slings) in between the bolts
and you will quickly see that routes such as this, graded
4, take on another dimension when you are leading!
Cocher-Cochon, 250 m, 5c maximum et traversée
Clocher-Clocheton (2428 m), 150 m, 4c maximum.
How these 2 routes are linked is splendid….. today
we will cover 400m of climbing in the sun facing Mont
Blanc. We start with “Cocher-Cochon”, eseentially
a moderne slab route. The second part is the traverse
“Clocher-Clocheton” and a well known classic,
originally opened in 1913! Climbing here is easy and the
“yodeling” between the first and second Clochton
will leave you with an unforgettable
Rieffel/Fournier, 300 m, 5c+ max, at the
Pain de Sucre (2646 m ).
To finsh the week off in style we will climb up the magnificent
south face of “Pain du Sucre” which is situated
in the Perrons chain. To reach our goal we must take the
car Lake Emosson in Switzerland and then walk in for 1hr
45mins. This is truly a wild rock face in the Haute Montagne
and requires a lot of experience. The routes here are
beaiful and varied. After our day at the Pain du Sucre
we return to Chamonix to complete your course assessments.
