Aigulle du Van. Route with no name.

Again if you want a very good climb in a unique position high above the Emmosson Dam and you want to have the route all to your selves then head up to the Aigulle du Van.
This is what Chris Dovell and I did. Chris was fresh back from climbing Everest where his rock climbing skills were by his own admission under used.
The climb is on brand new bolts and is 7 pitches long. The descent is via a scramble off the summit back down to the Bar for a beer before heading back to Chamonix.
