Activity description

This guided day trip in the Aiguilles Rouges massif to the Crochues (Chamonix Mont-Blanc) is ideal for mountaineering beginners!

The Mont-Blanc massif and the Alps in general are a vast playground for mountaineers. Crossing the Aiguilles Crochues is a rocky ridge course that beginners will definitely enjoy!

You will progress in glacial and mountainous terrain in the best possible conditions accompanied by your mountain guideMartin Narcy.

Programme:
You start your trip at 7:45 am at the cable car of Flégère where your instructor awaits you. You climb to the Index by the cable car and the chairlift of the Index. From there, you go to the Crochues Pass by crossing and hiking up a corridor. You begin the crossing by climbing a dihedral and continue along the ridge, with a few small climbing steps, up to the summit. You will then descend the summit and continue along the ridge until you descend the white lake. Finally, you end your trip with a descent to the Flégère ski lift. Throughout the course, you can admire breathtaking alpine landscapes!
