Mont Aiguille

Newer Older

Mont Aiguille (el. 2085 m./6841 ft.) is a mountain in the Vercors Plateau of the French Prealps, located 58 km (36 mi) south of Grenoble. The mountain is most noted for its first ascent in 1492. Charles VIII ordered that the peak be climbed, so one of his servants, Antoine de Ville, made the ascent using a combination of ladders and other artificial aids. The ascent is described by François Rabelais in his Quart Livre. This was the first recorded climb of any technicality, and has been said to mark the beginning of mountaineering.
