Aiguille des Pélerins

In February 1975 Rab Carrington and Alan Rouse brought hard Scottish style climbing to the Alps with their winter ascent  of the Terray Rebuffat route on the Aiguille des Pélerins.  17 years later Andy Parkin and Mark Twight climbed the nearby ‘Beyond Good and Evil’ and in February this year Jon Bracey, Matt Helliker and Pete Whittaker added ‘Beyond Reason’. In their own way each of these ascents have set new standards for the sport.

Why has this corner of the Chamonix Aiguilles been a test bed for the best climbers of their generation? Find out on 26 May.
