Climbed for the first time in 1968 by C.Gren, G.Grisolle, A.Poulain, M.Ziegler et André Contamine the “Contamine-Grisole” is a classic technical route on the Triangle du Tacul and one of the slightly easier climbing routes on this face.
A beautiful alpine rock route on a not-so-busy summit with amazing views of Grandes Jorasses. A good acclimatisation for an ascent of the Eiger or the Matterhorn for the strong climber or a serious objective on its own in preparation for bigger projects for the intermediate level alpinist.
With perfect views of Arête de Peuterey on the Mont Blanc this route is a classic. We are offering this, longer, route in place of the ‘normal route’ to Tour Ronde due to reduced objective hazard and aestheticism of the line. Without being ‘out there’ climbing the SE ridge of Tour Ronde is still a serious and demanding day in the mountains and the perfect step-up from Aiguilles Marbrees traverse.
