Description 

Aiguille de la Floria is one of the larger peaks in the Aiguille Rouges. It is home to a large number of multi-pitch sport climbs on its lower, middle, and upper buttress. From the middle buttress it is possible to walk back down to the base.

The normal route (the SW ridge) to the summit follows an easy snow gully with short sections of scrambling/climbing.

Getting There 

To get to Aiguille de la Floria, take the Flegere cable car, then Index chair lift. From here it is a 20 min walk to the base of the climb.
