Photographer's Note

Brévent (2525 meters) is a vertex located at the southern end of the Aiguille Rouge in the department of Haute-Savoie .

Despite its relatively low altitude, it is very popular destination for hikers for its location above the valley of the Arve and the panorama it offers on the Mont Blanc , probably one of the most beautiful in the region.

It is accessible by cable car since 1930 .

Currently, a cable car linking Chamonix-Mont-Blanc to the middle station Planpraz . From there a cable joined the summit via cable without Brévent pylon.
Thus one of the ski areas closest to the center of Chamonix.

WS : the way to summit via cable without pylon.
