mattnolandCosmique Arete  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2007

mattnoland

Climbed the route with a lot of snow on it which actually made the rock climbing a lot simpler than it might have been. Light snow falling and the promise of worsening weather got us climbing faster than we had planned and we finished the route in under three hours from the hut to the ladder. I climbed with guide Michael Silich who did a great job.

Aborted an attempt at the Mont Blanc Traverse because of high winds and climbed l'arete des cosmiques instead. Lots of fun on rock and ice. Managed the Midi-Plan traverse the day before but turned around half way up the rock on Aiguille du Plan because of buzzing rocks. Got T-stormed on the way back to the Cosmiques Refuge. Nice alpine climbs minus the fixed ropes and chipped rock.

Excellent and beautiful ridge. Roland and I started this classic at 09h30am from "Abri Simond" and arrived at 12h00am. We were lucky as very few people were there. Also the weather was perfect, sun and now clouds all along the route, so we enjoyed and admired the great views. An excellent experience !

This is really a very nice route. I enjoyed the roofsection (there is a sling in place). After the roof the route continues in a straight line to the "summit". Afterwards we climbed the Cosmiques Ridge back to the Telepherique.

A splendid route. Be sure to do this route when it is not crowded. That way you will enjoy the route so much more.

Did this route with another 5.8 Rebuffat route on near by Aguille de Cosmiques. Made for a long and outstanding day. We had acclimatized on the Eiger so we didn't even notice the altitude. The south face is a great line with lots of fun and varied crack climbing.

Great route!



Bivied at the Plan du Aiguille for a 3h30 a.m. start and reached the top in 11 hours. Exited on the left-hand side of the Rognon.



Lots of mostly easy rock interspersed with the odd harder pitch. Very loose rock lower down but it improves dramatically once you traverse across to the left-hand side of the arete. The snow / ice pitches seem to go on forever...

Great climb. Not terribly hard but had a lot of fun. Had a little of everything...rock, ice, snow and rappels. It can get a little crowded, which is not too fun in a couple of the more tricky sections. Note to the pushy Italian guide, thanks for climbing over our rope and pulling your party of 4 in between me and my climbing partner on the last chimney. It was still alot of fun though, and would definitly recommend it.

A simple warm up roue, but if climbing in summer, make sure you get an early start, as you'll end up having to que at the crux pitch, while being pushed out the way by French guides!

Prepare for a long hard day, and go as light weight as possible.
