Aiguille du Midi – Electrcic Avenue 7b

Right next to Aiguille du Midi, situated in a sea of mountains at an altitude of 3842m, stands proudly the 50m high granite monolith Gendarme des Cosmiques. For the past 30 years it hosted only 2 routes, Digital Crack (8a) and ArĂȘte des Cosmiques (8a), but this changed on the 10th of August 2022!

Emilian and Viktor bolted and freed a third route – Electric Avenue (7b)

The new route is very interesting and totally different then the other two thus making Gendarme des Cosmiques much more attractive and enjoyable by a wider range of climbers!

Stay tuned for the full story!
