Description 

The closest high mountain to Chamonix. Gorgeous, except for the ski/climbing lift. A bit sad aesthetically, but awesome for ease of access to the Vallee Blanche.

Getting There 

Spend a few euros and take the cable car, or walk 3000 vertical meters.

The ultra-classic moderate rock climb of the Vallee Blanche.Climbs immaculate granite up the sunny southeast face of the Aiguille du Midi, and then a simple 10-meter rappel back to the cable car station.After sampling the best granite in the Sierras and Colorado, I can say that the rock on the Rebuffat route, particularly the lower pitches, is hard to beat....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
