Aiguille du Midi: Rebuffat – Baquet is a beautiful route in Blanc Massif. 200m high, graded TD 6a on a perfect granite.

Yesterday I went back with Anna. Once again we enjoyed the amazing first 6th pitches but got lost again and climbed something that is not the Rébuffat and not what I climbed the first time either.

That’s great though because I can climb the same route over and over but it is always different and I am always on sight.

The route is graded TD 6a. We took the 6b exit which ends on the top of Aiguille du Midi South East Pilastre.
