John 'Training' at the Aiguille Du Midi Prior to Attempting Fil a' Plomb!

A fast team can complete this 750m climb departing from the first lift to the Plan de l'Aiguille and catching the lift down from the Midi the same day. Many teams who try this however end up sleeping in the toilets at the Midi station!

The Plan de l'Aiguille Refuge (2307m)

A good place to get an early start on Fil a' Plomb and be well ahead of teams from the first lifts.
