The Somone route is a magnificent climb located in the foothills of the Brevent (2525m) in the heart of the Aiguille Rouge Massif. This route links up pitches on a number of crags running up the slope below the Brevent cable car station. The numerous points of view on the Mont Blanc Massif, the uniformity and the variety of climbing styles : slab, dihedral, wall, crack, ridge makes this climb a classical one in the Chamonix Valley. Access is a 20-minute walk from the top of the Brévent cable car. The last pitch ends close to the summit of the Brévent.

The Somone route would make a great first multi-pitch route experience. Previous rock climbing experience is required: ability to climb French grade 4c minimum.


The group formula associates people who do not necessarily know each other. It is ideal for people looking for group friendliness and attractive prices.
