A modern alpine-rock route above Chamonix and an excellent introduction to trad alpine climbing. The route can be done to the breche or can be continued to the summit of Peigne. Good fitness and proficiency on rock are required for a summit bid.

Itineraries

Day 1

Chamonix - Aiguille du Peigne - Chamonix

We will take an early cable car for Plan des Aiguilles station. A 1 to 2 hours approach will take us to the start of the route. The route finishes on the "breche" before the descent by the Papillons couloir. However it is possible to carry on to the summit making the ascent much longer and strenuous. We should be on the summit with enough margin to catch the cable car back down to Chamonix.

Check out here a film during an ascent (not ours) a while back:

Good preparation climb for Matterhorn or the Eiger as well as for longer alpine rock routes like the Walker spur on Grandes Jorrasses.
