Description

Clinging to the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps, the Aiguille du Midi mountain stretches to 3,842 meters (12,605ft). Ascend to the snow-packed peaks that offer stunning panoramic views.

The Aiguille du Midi (French for Needle of the Midday) is the highest mountain peak served by an aerial system, and offers breathtaking views of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps.

We will reach the summit via the Cosmiques Ridge, a short route of rock and ice that is popular with climbers for all-around mountaineering skills.

First ascended in 1911, the Cosmiques Ridge is an interesting, yet not too difficult, route. The exposed ridgeline offers amazing views in all directions.
