Description

I want you to see something that you will constantly recall with a smile for the rest of your life. I want you to see and climb the Arete des Cosmiques in the French Alps.

The Arete des Cosmiques looks like it was designed by an expert sculptor or painter. Even the rock formations have an artistic appeal. I believe even if there was nothing else around this amazing peak. If it stood isolated, entirely on its own, it would still be more than worth it to climb. However, when you surround it by the Chamonix's finest scenery. And also place it in a position that offers the best views of the incredible Mont Blanc Massif. You have a chance to see something incredible. Thus making this one-day trip more than worthy of the word, unforgettable.

Starting at the magnificent Aiguille du Midi, we will begin our ascent by taking one of the most revered alpine routes in the Alps. And throughout the day, you will trek through snow, ice, and rock while breathing in crisp air and marvelling at the jagged powder topped peaks looming above you in all directions. The trek itself is not too difficult, so you don't have to worry about whether or not you can do it. As long as you have some prior climbing experience, you will be fine. As there are only a few difficult spots, and even those areas do little to reduce the enjoyment. Instead, they only add to the joy of the experience.

This trip will certainly leave you breathless. And will offer you the kind of views and subsequent memories that are truly priceless.

I look forward to your message. 

And if you want to see more of the Chamonix area, you can also join me for a guided climb of the Aiguille de Toule on this trip.

We were unable to climb the Arete des Cosmiques due to rock fall and crevasse issues, but we were able to re-route to the Aiguillie du Marbrees and it turned out to be the best choice given the situation. Had a great experience and Catalin Dobre was excellent in guiding me to a wonderful adventure

Mathis is a very knowledgeable guide. We made great time and learned a fair amount about moving fast in Alpine terrain.
