La Vie in Rosa - Grand Flambeau

First ascent: Ezio Marlier, Sergio Fiorenzano 27/05/2019
By: Ezio Marlier, Mountain Guide
Area: Western Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Grand Flambeau, Height: 3535m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Logical climb up Gran Flambeau, established while the Giro d'Italia visited Mont Blanc. Pitch 3 climbs a magnificent corner; 4 bolts improve safety while breaching the overhang.


Reach Courmayeur in Italy and take the Skyway cable car up to Rifugio Torino.


From the Torino hut head towards Colle Flambeau, a few hundred meters before on the left head towards the wall where there is a bolt with a cord (start of Koala Pirla). Skirt the wall for 40m to reach a bolt that indicates the start. The face is on the left, 5 min from the refuge. Starting altitude 3360m.


Abseil down the route, belays with 1 bolt and slings


Friends up to BD blue, set of nuts, slings. One 70m rope
