Join me on this guided climb to the Arête des Cosmiques summit and discover the high mountain in this beautiful area!

The Arête des Cosmiques is one of the classic climbs in the Chamonix area. It is the perfect introduction to mixed climbing (snow and rock) but requires some mountaineering experience. The route is rated AD (Assez Difficile/Fairly Hard) but you’ll find the crux is quite hard for its rating. It requires some suitable mixed climbing and also abseiling skills.

As we climb up, we’ll enjoy magnificent views of the Aiguille du Midi and the surrounding peaks. This is one of the main reasons why I like to bring my clients to Arête des Cosmiques.

June to September are the best months to climb this route. However, the route can get really busy during these months so try to avoid weekends.

We will meet in Chamonix and take the Aiguille du Midi-Vallee Blanche Cable to the top. From there, we’ll go down to the Col du Midi and then to the Abri Simond hut, where the route starts. It is possible to reach the summit in the same morning.

If you’ve always dreamed of making it to the top of Arête des Cosmiques, contact me now and we’ll arrange the details together. I can guarantee an unforgettable experience!

About the guide

guide profile img

The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.

First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.

My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.

Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.
