To get better acquainted with the local ratings and enjoy some scenery, especially with unstable weather possible on the higher peaks, the lower elevations of the Aiguilles Rouges sounded nice. Hiking from the valley was enjoyable. The telepherique to the Aiguilles Rouges had closed for the season the previous day so we had it all to ourselves! The first goal was the easy classic, the Southeast Ridge of the Aiguille de l'Index.
The easy route was easy. Next on the agenda, Voie des Dalles on Aiguille du Pouce.
