Aiguille du Midi (3842m) is a well-known mountain within the Mont Blanc Massif. Rock climbers flock to this peak because of its many routes and impressive vistas. The most popular ascent for both rock climbers and mountaineers is the Arete des Cosmiques (mixed climbing, 5.6, M4), which draws alpinists from across the globe to Chamonix. Other routes include the Voie Rebuffat-Baquet (trad and Alpine, 5.10-), Frendo Spur (mixed climbing, around 5.8, M4), and Midi-Plan Traverse.

Carlos is an unbelievable guide and I would recommend him to anyone considering any trip with him. He is very knowledgeable but relaxed with how he treats his clients. Would absolutely hire him again

I give Peakshunter Mountain Guides a 5 star Review. I come from America and I was given holiday on short notice so I sent out some climbing inquiries on Explore-Share. Silvia from Peakshunter was the first guide to respond to my request and she was able to coordinate an awesome adventure for two days for me. I went in with no expectations since I don\'t know that region that well. I relied on their judgement. My guide was Elis and he was phenomenal and patient with me. They answered all my questions prior to the trip and made my experience in the Mont Blanc region unforgettable. I could not be happier with my experience with Peakshunter. Thank you Silvia and Elis!

Romain was a great guide in planning and leading the climbs. He was safe, supportive and did not rush so I could enjoy the climbing. Best of all he took some incredible photos in some precarious positions!
