For the first time of the year, I went with Julien to l’Envers des Aiguille to climb Children of the Moon l’intégrale at Aiguille de Roc (Mont Blanc Massif).

Children of the Moon l’intégrale is a great route opened by Michel Piola and Nicolas Schenkel in 1982.

The route is 550 meters high on a perfect granite and graded TD+, 6b+. The approach is quick and easy from the recommended Envers des Aiguille hut (30min).

There are 18 pitches from 5b to 6b+.
