Description

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.

Carlos is a very accomplished rock climber, speaks great English, and is fun to be around. We felt very safe while climbing with him on the Sharks Fin, and learned a lot too.

The whole trip was excellent. Explore share did a great job coordinating. Carlos is an experienced guide and effective teacher. I felt safe with him the whole time we were on the mountain. The weather was terrific and we summited just as expected. I highly recommend Carlos Vasquez for Mont Blanc.

Carlos was a professional and committed guide! We had three great days. He was friendly and guided us savely up to mt blanc. i dont understand the one bad rating carlos got. In my opinion it think it was an bloody amateur which shouldnt have been on mt blanc in the first place. Let me say one thing. If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!

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
