Arête des Cosmiques

"Done as part of the Mount Blanc Special run by KE but really organised by Chamonix Experience. We were driven to the valley station of Aiguille du Midi and went up the cable car system to the Aiguille du Midi top station. Fintan West, Rhona Fraser and I went with guide Octavio Defazio to climb Arête des Cosmiques (AD). The others went with Richard Mansfield to traverse Point Nationale. We climbed down to the glacier and went round to the vicinity of Refuge des Cosmiques. It was not all that difficult to start with. About half way there was an awkward high step up. There was an abseil and later" - peter43, Jul 18, 2007
