I love my Swiss mountains, but sometimes it’s nice to go somewhere else. The Chamonix region offers a lot, and I know french climbers who do not go anywhere else.
After climbing the Rochefort Ridge a time ago, Daniel Arndt and me decided to climb Dent du Géant. This peak is a giant 4’000 meters needle, as you can see by the shadows down left. Climbing there is sometimes near to vertical, and the way down is really vertical: Abseiling only, sometimes overhanging.
The guy on shown here managed to reach the start of the climb a bit earlier than us, resulting in a 45 minutes waiting for us to enter the climb.
However, it was a great experience to climb this mountain, and the view was magnificent. In the background you can see Aiguille du Midi.
