DescriptionThis great route is on the Aiguille d'Argentière, which is in the Argentière glacier basin area (which here on MountainProject is under the Chamonix area).
Magnificent line put up by Rebuffat in the mid 60s on Le Minaret, everything slogging offwidth chimney to an airy roof and everything in between. Impeccable sculpted granite eats up gear wherever you feel like placing it.
The rappel line can be done off of either Versant Satanique or Metal Rasta, the two adjacent routes, we went down Metal Rasta and found it pretty hard to follow, make sure you do your homework on the rap line or end up spending a few hours rigging off of flakes and old pitons like we did!
Edit: route name was "Voie Mazars Rebuffat"
