Miss No - La Vierge du Flambeau

First ascent: Elisabetta Ceaglio, Ezio Marlier 04/2017
By: Ezio Marlier, Mountain Guide
Area: Western Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: La Vierge du Flambeau, Height: 3300m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Miss No is a difficult modern mixed climb established onsight April 2017 up the NE Face of La Vierge du Flambeau. Despite its easy access from the Torino hut, in the past this mountain strangely never attracted much attention.


Reach Courmayeur in Italy and take the Skyway cable car for the Torino Refuge.


From Rifugio Torino walk slightly downhill, down the track that leads towards Marbree then keep left, keeping circa a hundred meters to the left of Petit Flambeau, along the descent that is normally done on skis for la Noire!


P1: 40m M5 couloir with delicate start
P2: 25 m M6 mixed terrain
P3: 40m M8 difficult thin crack, hard to protect
P4: 30m M7 difficult corner with delicate exit
P5: 25m start up grade V on rock, then mixed terrain
P6: 40m easy mixed climbing facile


Follow the ridge that leads to the summit of Petit Flambeau, uphill (recommended) or traverse rightwards (large crevasses) to reach the track that from the Tacul “satellites” leads up Flambeau!
