Rock climbing Aiguille du Midi - La Contamine and Le Fou de l’Aiguille.

Posted on: July 18, 2014

The weather finally became warm and sunny and we decided to make the best of it. 

The south face of Aiguille du Midi is an amazing steep wall of perfect golden granite. There are several routes between 5c and 8a with very easy access - you can leave your rucksacks and boots on the top and just rappel down to the base of the route to climb light. We have climbed La Contamine (6c/7a) and le Fou de l’Aiguilles (7b). Both routes follow a system of steep cracks and flakes. We highly recommend it, its pure rock fun!!
