Aiguille du Midi

Alpinism: Pointes Lachenal – Contamine

There are some really nice routes in the Pointes Lachenal (3,613m). After Harold et Maud, L’Orée du Bois, Pascal and I climbed the Contamine yesterday (the driest on the face), another great climb. Pointes Lachenal – Contamine route (© P. Gatta)

Alpinism: Aiguille du Midi – La Contamine

Anna and I climbed another great route in Aiguille du Midi: La Contamine, 8 pitches, all nice! We finished right on time for a quick lunch on the sunny top of the Aiguille. View over Grandes Jorasses, Rochefort and Dent du Geant from Aiguille du Midi (© A. Gatta)

Alpinism: Pointes Lachenal – Harold et Maud

Pascal and I climbed Harold et Maud in Pointes Lachenal this morning. What a beautiful route on a perfect Granite!! Note that the other routes on Pointes Lachenal and Aiguille du Midi were dry too. View over Grand Capucin and Gervasuti Couloir from Pointes Lachenal (© P. Gatta)
