If you are a beginner in mountaineering and want to practice your skills while admiring unequaled views of the Mont Blanc Massif, this is the adventure for you. Short and just technical enough, mountaineering on the Aiguilles Crochues is one of the most popular day trips out of Chamonix.
Mountaineering in the Aiguilles Crochues might be of limited technical difficulties, but it still requires a minimum level of climbing skills – so make sure that you check with your guide about the exact requirements beforehand. As with any climbing expedition of any level, study the terrain and the conditions in advance to make sure that your expedition is as safe as possible. While this adventure could theoretically be done at any time during the year (bearing good mountain conditions of course), summertime offers the higher chance of clear visibility and suitable conditions. This, however, means a higher number of mountaineers; so be aware that you will not be alone on the path.
