The Aiguille du Peigne (3192m) in Chamonix has been tempting avid rock climbers for generations. Aiguille du Peigne, which translates to “The Comb Needle”, is a fitting name for this sharp granite peak rising toward the sky on Mont Blanc.
One of several needle-like peaks found near Chamonix, the Aiguille du Peigne is by far the most iconic. Plus, easy access and top-notch climbing routes make the Aiguille du Peigne an ideal destination for a day trip from Chamonix.
I offer this day trip exclusively as a private rock climbing tour for 1-2 people, so you can expect a highly personalized experience. Aside from an eagerness to climb, my only requirement is that participants be fit, intermediate level climbers. Ideally, you would have a 5+ level.
We will approach the Aiguille du Peigne via the Contamine Vaucher route. This route is rated as a grade 6a climb and spans approximately 400 vertical meters over a hard granite surface.
We will meet in Chamonix and travel together to the base of the Aiguille du Peigne. I will have a packed lunch ready for you, so no need to worry about meals. At the end of the day, I will accompany you back to Chamonix. I am always happy to provide recommendations on what to see and do in my hometown here in the Alps.
Come and find out for yourself why the Aiguille du Peigne has remained a top destination for climbers in Chamonix for more than a century. Click “Request to book” now to get in touch with me and set up your private tour.
If you are planning to stay more than a day here in Chamonix, I would love to show you the Aiguille du Midi and some of the other great climbing venues on Mont Blanc. I also create fully personalized tours, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with me with any special requests.
Transportation to and from the climbing venue is not included.
