Cosmiques Arete – Solo

I decided to have a go at a bit of solo mixed climbing. It was my first real go at mixed climbing as well. I remember being quite excited about it, and a little bitĀ apprehensive.

At the end of the Cosmiques Arete, where it meets the top of the Glacier Rond are the remains of one of the early attempts at putting a cable car up Mont Blanc.

The footsteps here show the start of the route, and further up you can see the needle on top of the Aiguille where the route finishes.

Looking back from half way along the arete.

Nearing the end, you can see someone in yellow up ahead.
