Day 9, part b: Tre-le-Champ to La Flégère

Looking back to Tre-le-Champ, Le Tour, and Col de la Balme (start of the day).

This part of the hike ascended from the valley floor (valley of the Arve/Chamonix valley) up the Aiguilles Rouges through a series of metal ladders. The hiker ends up high on the west side of the Chamonix Valley, with a monumental view to the east of the Mt Blanc massif.
