Wednesday 23 August 2023 just before 11am local time, there was a massive rockfall on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi.
To be more precise, it was between the Frendo Spur and the Mallor-Porter route which are close to one another almost immediately below the Aiguille du Midi top station and summit.
The deafening noise and the thick cloud of dust generated by the rockfall were heard and seen throughout the Chamonix valley.
This mythical wall that hangs high over Chamonix seems to be crumbling more quickly in the very high temperatures recorded around Mont Blanc, including at high altitudes of over 3000 meters.
