Lépidoptères on the Aiguille du Peigne. One of the best routes we got do to in Chamonix last summer. Five pitches of fun climbing up slabs and corner systems which then joined the Papillons Ridge for two more pitches
The approach was somewhat intimidating; felt very small walking under these steep dark walls.
Slabby right off the belay.
Very memorable to see Polly’s smiling face after she climbed up to the ridge crest and off the north-facing wall and into the sun.
Coolest pitch: weaving between granite flakes and spikes with lots of air off either side.
Our route is marked in green.
