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).
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.
Climbed by Renato Chabod and Giusto Gervasutti in 1934 this West facing ice couloir (and its variants) is a classic moderate ice climb in the vicinity of the Torino hut yet with a very alpine, majestic ambiance.
