350m.

Rockfax Description
II, 350m, 3 - 4 hours. Whether you get it quiet or busy, the situations and quality of the climbing make Arête des Cosmiques one of the great alpine challenges.
Approach - Descend the Aiguille du Midi via the famous snow ridge before swinging around to the west and passing under the Midi South Face and the Éperon des Cosmiques. Turn north to reach the abandoned Cosmqiues Observatory and the Abri Simond Hut (which is locked whenever the Refuge des Cosmiques is open - mid-February to mid-October). The route begins from these ramshackle buildings.
1) From the Cosmiques Observatory, just below the modern Refuge des Cosmiques, climb the vague gully just to the right of the crest of the ridge.
2) When the ridge peters out, drift rightwards across slabby ground to reach an exposed snow traverse on the south side of the ridge to a small summit above the Éperon des Cosmiques.
3) Make an awkward 20m abseil from here, using a bolted anchor, to reach an exposed, flat snow ridge on the crest of the arête which leads to a chimney beneath a steep rock wall.
4) At the top of the chimney is another set of bolts, from which a 25m abseil takes you onto an ex§osed ledge on the south side of the ridge, underneath a steep, golden tower.
5) Continue along the ledge for 10m to reach a short, steep chimney on the left which is climbed on positive holds to reach a peg belay. Downclimb for 5m in the direction of the ridge crest before climbing up to reach the crest itself via a steep slope (much easier when snow covered). Climb up the ridge crest for 5m then traverse a vague ledge system along some interesting but easy terrain on the south side of the ridge, staying roughly 10m below the ridge top. Then descend slightly to a snow ledge underneath an imposing rock overhang. Follow the ledge under the overhang and up onto the ridge crest and follow this to the foot of a 20m high slab of golden granite - the crux pitch.
6) 4c. Climb the slab itself (4c) for 8m (bolt at the top of this section and pre-drilled crampon pockets for the feet) before stepping right and climbing the easy chimney to reach a large ledge at the top of the slab. (This is the toughest section of climbing on the route and as such queues can form here. If you don't want to wait, you can drop onto the north side of the ridge just before the 20m slab and climb a very tight, squirmy chimney instead, which brings you out next to the top of the slab.) From here, cross onto the north side of the ridge via an awkward step down before traversing towards the cable car station for 30m to reach a steep chimney. There are slings to belay off and in mid-season there is often a collection of fixed gear. Either way, the belay stance is in a location which is of a kind normally only visited on much harder routes than this.
7) 4a. Take in the exposure before stepping up and into the chimney. The move to get into this is tricky (unless you know where the hidden hold is!) but the rest is enjoyable and exposed, with climbing roughly akin to Scottish II or 4a rock climbing depending on conditions. The chimney is 30m long, after which 10m of blocky steep scrambling brings you onto the crest of the ridge, just below the cable car station.
8) A short, final snow ridge leads to an old, wobbly ladder and finally, the viewing platform at the Aiguille du Midi where you can expect to be stared at by incredulous tourists. It's even been known for autographs to be signed by some climbers whose arrival at the lift station coincided with that of a group of particularly exuberant holiday makers! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Three stars for a modern classic, although most agree it is easier than the "AD" grade. From right above the Abri Simond Bivy Hut, follow the SW Ridge staying mainly on the south side. Snow and rock route, two 20 meters rappels back to back; the first a diagonal descent and the second a drop down a chimney. Towards the end of climb after the short wall with A0-type move possible, move around the large ledge towards the north face and climb the small gully to the ladder that leads to the viewing platform of the Midi Station.
Route finding can be quite tricky. 3 hours from Abri Simond area.

The bolts are still on the back face that you abseil from but it’s definitely more exposed now. As this was a winter ascent there is quite a lot of snow, which actually helps where the rock fall was, I think it will be much more difficult in summer when it’s dry.......!

petecallaghan 28 Jul, 2017 2nd O/S Got to the station for the 6:30am lift. Strong winds and breakdowns meant we didn't start up until around 9:30. Rain and fog at the top, so we did the tourist things, had coffee and croissant. Fog showed signs of lifting so we geared up in the ice tunnel and headed out onto the ridge. Fog vanished and revealed the astonishing Vallee Blanch. Overwhelming. I will never forget it. I may have been distracted by photo opportunities on the ridge, so Ellie (aka 'Allez') refused to let me stop and take any more pics till we got to the ridge. I was middleman. First time climbing with ice ax and crampons. Took a while but I eventually got to grips with it. We were slowed by a team of Russians but Ellie overtook them past the abseils and we rushed to make it for the last lift. I think we took 5 hours. Felt a bit of a fraud when the tourists on the deck applauded us as we topped out the wobbly ladder to the station.

ftocher 21 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S A great route which can get busy at times, we bivvied and got on the route at 6:20am Many French guides still managed to tangle in our ropes overtaking on dodgy sections then asked us to downclimb. Climbed all in crampons, with bivvi gear in under 4 hours. Dodgiest part of the route is probably the ladder at the end, but still perfectly safe.

peachos 2 Aug, 2016 AltLd Loved it for our first proper Alpine mountaineering route/experience. Even the bit where it took us twice as long as the guidebook recommends and therefore had to spend the night in the Midi as punishment after missing the last lift. Crux was fun/easy. Alternative crux we found was a bit more difficult. Had it very quiet, compared to the notes of some of the others on here - just one couple from Liverpool shouting at each other to 'Get a grip' for company. The blue room is the warmest in the Midi station, though the concrete floor isn't too comfortable. First lift in the morning is 0640 for ref.

As far as the climbing goes it's straightforward, but brilliant fun - a great mountaineering route. Did have a bit of a wait on the abseils, also later on at the chimney, after a climber fell due to foothold in snow collapsing (they were fine, but took their time afterwards!). Lots of exposed traverses, and some good chimney action. Traversed left after final chimney over exposed broken ground then up a steep juggy flake, I think this may be an alternative finish! Missed the public cable car, but luckily staff member kept the staff cable car back for us.

ChrisH89 15 Jun, 2016 AltLd O/S First alpine route, and what a route! Despite the awful weather Chamonix has had for the last few weeks we found a weather window and decided to risk it. Awesome climbing, still in winter condition despite the time of year. Crux was banked out making it simple (didn't realise we'd done it till it was over) but the last section was a delightful chimney groove (around Scottish grade 3?) in full view of the Midi viewing platforms, with the classic topout onto one of them where some Brazilians promptly asked to borrow our axes for a photo...!

jing 24 Apr, 2016 2nd dog Challenging winter condition. The approach was covered by thigh high snow, sometimes waist high. I also stepped into mt first crevasse :) The climb itself was also covered in snow, I took a 10m fall on a snow slope due to my bad crampon work (and fresh snow). I think I only really touched rock in the last two pithes or so. We were surprised when we were half way up the crux (the lower half buried in snow) We took the 9:30 lift and went down by 16:00 (the team behind us turned back...), thanks to Neil's efficiency, otherwise we could have taken a long long time... A route to remember, but probably not to repeat in the same condition. What a day!

The original plan had been to do the Contamine on the Lachenal but we didn't have time (aka didn't get up early enough!). After giving up on a route on the Eperon (figuring we wouldn't have time), decided to do the Cosmiques as Plan C as Ian and Alex hadn't done it before. Started at 2pm, at the top at 4.30pm. Moved together except for the crux pitch which Alex led. Got overtaken by two guided parties but otherwise no traffic. Clear of snow as well, so pretty cruisey except that we had very heavy packs due to the bivvy gear for the Grand Cap! Also all the Grand Cap gear - two 60m ropes, double set of cams, set and a half of wires... even used some of it occasionally! The drilled crampon slots seem to be proliferating!

Amazing setting with a full moon over one shoulder and the lights of chamonix over the other.

Moved together for the most part, pitched the crux and the traverse after the 2nd Gendarme - got a bit caught out on the final traverse below the exit chimney but all in all a great day with a bit of everything. Shame it was very busy though - standard French guides barging past, climbing all over us etc (we were moving quite slowly)

Rob Royle 5 May, 2014 Lead Fantastic day in the mountains, great climb and amazing views! First time on this route, so it was interesting to lead it! All went well although I ended up climbing the 'difficult' chimney on the NW face behind the crux slab as I got confused on the actual route up the slab....! Another group came over the top (up the slab in the right place so I'll know for next time.....) Really fun day!!

Sam Husband 21 Aug, 2012 AltLd O/S Best climb I have ever done. Camped and started at 3am in the dark which meant we were the first up of the day and missed the infamous crowds (we could see them in pursuit!). Got a bit lost and did the alternate F5 crux (sent ed up to check the way..), lots of asian support at summit!

Andy Hewison 29 Jul, 2012 2nd O/S Did this after doing the traverse of Pointe Lachenal. Straight forward climbing mainly on rock but kept crampons on all of the time to make it more interesting. It also made the trickier parts and especially the crux section easier due to the holes in the rock for crampon front points. We were greeted almost as heroes by the tourists on the viewing platform!! Amazing day.

Three hours from the tunnel exit to the viewing platform. Was happy to get the last lift back at 11 before it got shut for the rest of the day due to weather. Met a random soloist who fell from the crux but miraculously wasn't hurt. We let him tie into the middle of our rope as he didn't want to push his luck any further that day.

It was really busy and had to wait constantly, which didn't help my nerves. On reflection, it's pretty straightforward and the '4b slab' is fine, although my crampon getting caught in the elastic of my boot caused some serious scared swearing! I was very glad to get off the route. Great lead from Dave. And as I was taking off my crampons at the finish, a 77 year old American guy finished the route. Which was very awesome.

Heaps harder than in the summer! We cruised past everything but now the thick snow is gone and there was some interesting climbing to do. Alex hating life, first time in mountaineering boots and coming from sea level. Fun climb and definitely a stylish way to get back up to the Midi.

John Andrew Simpson ?Oct, 2003 Lead This became some form of comedy epic, we were unfit, a lot of fresh snow on the route and it was cold, didn't get the first lift up so were at the start of route by midday. On the final pitch I kicked my boot into a crack for a jam a bit too hard and i couldn't pull it out. So couldn't go up, as i had a piece of gear in. All i could do was fall to hopefully pull the boot out. But I stayed stuck hanging upside down. I then had to belay Yan up hanging upside down. Once he got to me he managed to untie the boot lace and i got my foot out, but the boot was still stuck. Luckily there was a French team just above us and they passed a rope down and we used this to get up the final crack, and I legged it across the snow with one boot on quickly as my toes were starting to feel cold. We then had missed the last cabin down, so we spent the night in the womens toilets with the French climbers. In the morning I borrowed a boot from the ski station but Yan wasn't up for going back out on the route, so the next team up must have always wondered about the mystery of the lone boot.
