Sunrise at Aiguille du Midi

May 4, 2012

Many mountain lovers already visited Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix, France. Aiguille du Midi provides the second highest cablecar top station of Europe with 3’777m / 12 391ft (Klein Matterhorn top station is 3’820m / 12 532ft). You have a beautiful vista there.

This photo of Aiguille du Midi was made during the ascend to Dome du Goûter, 4’304m / 14 120ft, via it’s snowy north ridge. Most of the climb we had to carry our ski on our backs, but the ride down through huge ice seracs was magnificient. Unfortunately, two people ascending with us lost one ski and had to return. However, sunrise is one of the most wonderful experiences up there.
