Normal Route – Nadelhorn 4327m – PD

Normal Route – Nadelhorn PD Route: Normal Route – Nadelhorn - Zermatt Category: Mountaineering - Ski Touring Route Gallery: Route description: The twelve highest mountain in the alps presents a variety of routes including the famous AD traverse of the Nadelgrat, which takes in four 4000m peaks along it's ridge.

Aiguille d’Orny – Chamonix

Aiguille d'Orny – Chamonix Route: Aiguille d'Orny – Chamonix - France Category: Rock Climbing, Mountaineering Route Gallery: Route description: Topping out at 3150m, the Aiguille d'Orny is a great introduction to alpine rock climbing. They are a few routes on it's faces, but we commonly climb the classic south arete. The climbing is pretty steady, mostly in the 3a – 4b range with the odd harder move. Most will climb in rock shoes, unless it's cold of course! Altogether there are around nine pitches leading to the small summit. The climbing is bolted, but it's worth having a small...

Aiguille d'Entreves, Italy - Courmayeur Route: Traverse – Aiguille d'Entreves - Chamonix Category: Mountaineering Route Gallery: Route description: The traverse of the Aiguille du Entreves is Courmayeurs equivalent to the Cosmiques arete. Short, technical and good fun, although the Entreves doesn't finish quite as conveniently as the Cosmiques, you'll have to walk back to the lift station! The route starts at the col du Entreves, an hour and a halves glacial walk from the skyway lift which starts in Courmayeur. After an initial easy scramble, the ridge narrows and travels horizontally towards the summit tower. This section is very...
