For many the Frendo Spur on the Aiguille du Midi is the first big alpine big route they dream of. It is hard not to be mesmerised by this elegant line so visible from down-town Chamonix and over which the hordes of tourist navigate in the glass box of the cable-car each day on their way to the Aiguille du Midi top terrace.
This climb is THE Southern Alps’ most coveted alpine rock climb! Tricky access, long rock ridge and stunning surroundings. A must for anyone who enjoyed the Mittelegi Ridge in the Western Alps of Europe or prepares for it (minus the crowds and fixed ropes).
