Rochefort Arête

Thanks to Pete from last weeks Matterhorn group, for sending us this stunning photo of the Rochefort Arête which he traversed guided by Alain. This amazing route follows the knife edge snow ridge between the Dent du Geant and Aiguille du Rochefort, and it forms the frontier between France and Italy. The exposure is huge, and the views are unforgettable. In the background of this photo is Mont Blanc and its Brenva face. Other courses that ascend this route are the Alpine Classics course, and the Eiger course as a ‘warm up’ before the Mittileggi ridge later in the week.
