Description

On the east face of the Brévent peak (2525 m), Voie Frison-Roche is one of the classic rock climbing routes in the Aiguilles Rouges. Come with me for a great adventure!

This is a 6 pitches climbing route, that reaches a 6a grade in the French grading system. It’s important that you have experience in lead belay. You should also be able to climb 5c or 6a as follow (not lead but to second).

We’ll meet at the bottom of Brevent lift station, take the first lift and then hike to the base of the route.

When we top out, we’ll be at the top of the Brevet lift station, so we can board the lift back without walking.

We’ll return around noon. In fact, you can be drinking down in the Chamonix valley by early afternoon!

Please, let me know if you want to go rock climbing in Voie Frison-Roche route. My available dates for this trip are between 27 July and 8 August.

Besides, you can also try other climbing routes in Aiguilles Rouges, like Mani Puliti in Aiguille de la Gliere.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!!
