Description

(Despite the above title, this area is for listing ice, mixed and snow routes only, rock routes should be added elsewhere)

The Aiguilles de Chamonix proudly crowd the skyline above Chamonix and can readily be checked from downtown to see if the ice routes are in condition. They contain a high concentration of ice, rock and mixed routes.

Despite what the climbing season charts say below, the best time to hit the ice routes in this area is in October to early November and then again in late Winter and early Spring. The past Summers have been too hot to find consistent thick ice.

Getting There

Either hike up to the Plan de L'Aiguille (2 to 3 hours) or take the Aiguille du Midi telepherique to the midway station (10 minutes ride).
