Rock Climbing

The Chamonix Valley has a wide variety of mountain Rock Climbing areas such as the Aiguilles Rouges offering classics like the Chapelle de la Glière, Clocher-Clochetons and Traverse of the Index. The Chamonix Aiguilles are on the other side of the valley with classics like the Arête des Papillons and the superb rock above the Envers Refuge. Higher up above the glaciers are a multitude of classics on the famous golden granite of Chamonix.

The Chamonix valley, Val D’Aoste and neighbouring Switzerland are home to many quality valley rock climbing venues too, a day on the nine pitch Machabe crag in Italy is a must.
