Chamonix is ​​the French valley where the finest granite is found.
It is here that most of the history of mountaineering was written. Cracks with compact walls between the Aiguille du Midi, the Shark refuge…Le Grand Capucin. ?

“Where the dwellings, then the trees, then the grass are exhausted, the sterile, wild, mineral kingdom is born; however, in its extreme poverty, in its total nudity, it dispenses a wealth that is priceless: the happiness that we discover in the eyes of those who frequent it. »

Gaston Rebuffat
