General information

The Frison Roche route was first climbed by members of the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix in tribute of the famous French mountain guide and writer Roger Frison-Roche. It quickly became a “not-to-missed climb” in the Aiguille Rouges Massif. With a quick access from the top of the Brévent cable car (2525m), a varied route with breathtaking views of the Mont Blanc. The local “gneiss” requires a significant climbing experience and a good flair to find the best way within the heart of the southern face of the Brévent. The amazing dihedral of the last pitch ends close to the summit of the Brévent. Previous rock climbing experience is required: ability to climb French grade 5c/6a minimum

The Chamonix Valley offers numerous mid-altitude multi-pitch climbing sites accessible from May to November. Explore Barberine near Vallorcine, featuring routes like "Le Magicien d'Oz" (300m, 5c/6a) and "Vipère au Pied" (300m, 6a). In Vallon de Bérard, classics include "L'Été Indien" (250m, 5c/6a) and "Into the Wild" (250m, 5c). Starting from Flégère, the foothills of l'Index, Grandes Floria, and Aiguilles Crochues are a true paradise for climbers, showcasing gems like "La Perroux" (210m, 5c), "Asia" (210m, 5c), and "Gaspard 1er" (160m, 5c). These destinations are perfect for climbing enthusiasts looking to avoid the challenges of glacial approaches and high-altitude climbing.
