    Aiguille de la Gliere is a popular peak of the Aiguilles Rouges, a mountain massif facing Mont Blanc.

    There, you can find several rock climbing routes. This time, I propose to take Mani Puliti, a multi-pitch route with 7 pitches.

    Whether you have some previous climbing experience or you are just getting started with outdoor multi-pitch climbing, this programme is suitable for you.

    The hardest part reaches a 5b grade in the French grading system. 

    Therefore, you must know how to lead belay and follow (not lead but second) at that grade.

    For this trip, we’ll meet at the bottom of Index lift in Flegere area, in Chamonix, at any time between lift start time up to 10 am. From the base of our route, it will take us 3.5 hours to top out.

    Are you planning a trip around Chamonix? Join for an exciting rock climbing trip in a classic spot! My available dates for this trip are between 27 July and 8 August. 

    If you are looking for longer and slightly harder multi pitch routes, you can check this rock climbing program in Oraison route, also in Aiguille de la Gliere.

    About the Guide


    I am an IFMGA mountain guide as well as a specialist in mountain rescue. As a guide, I constantly work towards increasing the standards of mountaineering skills in Japan with an emphasis on risk and safety management, whilst training and coaching mountaineering clubs and rescue teams.

    I started climbing in my 20s, and since then have enjoyed all-round mountain activities including alpine climbing in Mt Tanigawa (on which I’ve climbed over 360 times), Hodaka, Tsurugi areas as well as rock climbing, ice climbing, ski mountaineering, sawanobori, and high altitude climbing in the Himalayas.
    In addition to numerous and notable climbs in Japan, I have an extensive climbing experiences abroad both personal and for guiding; in the Himalayas (Lotse etc.), Eiger, Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Grands Jorasses north face, and New Zealand (Aspiring, Cook).

    My current interest is in training people mountain skills in order for them to enjoy the mountains better and in a safer manner. I run a mountain guide academy where I have been training future mountain guides with a strong focus on safety and elimination of accidents for a number of years. At the same time, I very much enjoy teaching and running skills courses for beginners who are just getting into the mountains but are keen on learning and/ or improving their skills for their next project.

    Please contact me if you’re looking for a guide to train you to accomplish your dream project, to help you progress in your mountain skills, or to help you gain introductory skills for first time mountaineering / ice climbing / rock climbing / ski mountaineering! I’d be very happy to assist you to achieve your wishes!!

    Kenichi is a great guide, very experienced and focussed on delivering a safe yet enjoyable journey. We were lucky weather conditions on both days were favourable and the views along the way and from the Nishihodaka summit were just stunning!
