Emma Twyford Attempts Voie Petit, Grand Capucin, Chamonix
British climbers Emma Twyford and Calum Muskett attempt Voie Petit (8b/5.13d 450m), 14-pitch alpine climb on the Grand Capucin, Chamonix,
France. According to Alex Huber, who free climbed the entire route in a single day on July 17, 2005, the route is possibly the hardest high-altitude
route in Europe.
Voie Petit was Emma’s first foray into alpine climbing, and while she was unsuccessful in her attempt—the climb has yet to see a female
ascent—it sparked her interest in alpine climbing.
