NE Face of the Aiguille de Praz-Torrent

Description 

The Aiguille de Praz Torrent is a mountain located at the North-East edge of the Aigulles Rouges between Argentiere and Vallorcine. The North-East side of Praz-Torrent is perhaps the most accessible and most commonly climbed face in the Measure - Praz Torrent region.

Getting There 

Park at the Teleski de la Poya which is located a about a kilometer after the Col des Montets when coming from Chamonix (toward Vallorcine). From here follow the ski slope until you reach a horizontal path, there is a small sign saying "Praz-Torrent" which points to a path which leads up the slope off into the woods. Follow this path for about one and a half hours to arrive at the mountain.

The easiest line up the NE face of the Aiguille de Praz Torrent, this climb provides interesting and varied climbing. It is highly aesthetic and is really only marred by a bit of grass on pitch 3. Pitch 1 (5.8): Climb the obvious rightward sloping ramp (very easy) which starts just above a small metal plaque at the base of the NE face. At the end of this ramp move right and upwards to a belay on a small ledge.
