Description

Tucked in between the majestic Aiguille du Midi and iconic Mont Blanc, the Cosmiques ridge is a classic alpine climb that combines stunning beauty with the perfect challenge!

Beginning first thing in the morning, we will catch a cable car up to the summit of Aiguille du Midi and begin our approach. The adventure begins with a short glacier hike of about 20 to 30 minutes before we get onto the ridge proper.

Once on the ridge, we will spend the next several hours climbing up granite slabs and scaling icy couloirs, all while surrounded by towering peaks. We will finish off the day by returning to Aiguille du Midi and taking the cable car back down.

None of the climbing is overly technical – making the trip appropriate for novice-level mountaineers – but it is diverse and tough enough to keep more advanced mountaineers happy as well.

One of the many highlights of the trip is the stunning views that we will get from all along the ridge, some of which are considered the best in the entire Chamonix valley.

We will have a front row seat to see the sun rise over the Alps and get some incredible views of Mont Blanc with the sun shining directly on it, the perfect conditions for out-of-this-world photographs.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 1-day traverse of the Cosmiques ridge from Aiguille du Midi!

If you like the look of this trip then I also think you may enjoy my 2-day mountaineering trip up to the summit of Grossglockner in Austria!

About the guide

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.
