Right next to Aiguille du Midi, situated in a sea of mountains at an altitude of 3842m, stands proudly the 50m high granite monolith Gendarme des Cosmiques. For the past 30 years it hosted only 2 climbing routes, Digital Crack (8a) and Arête des Cosmiques (8a), but this changed on the 10th of August 2022.
