The South Ridge Integrale, Aiguille de Moine © Bryan W

Crag features

A wonderful granite summit, nestled amongst some of the biggest and best known peaks in the massif, and served by an superb hut. An ascent of the Moine is a pleasure by any route, however, it has been the scene of many epics so take care - this is a serious peak and getting off it is not easy even for experienced climbers.

Approach notes

From the Refuge du Couvercle, follow the high-level path back to the Montenvers train for 50m and then cut right up to the foot of the tiny glacier/snow patch at the foot of the South Face. This takes 20 minutes from the hut. For the South Ridge Integrale, traverse west across moraine and boulders for a further 10 minutes.
