The Aiguille de Midi is an imposing peak towering over the Chamonix valley, it's fame (and accessibility) has been greatly augmented by the construction of the Aiguille de Midi telepherique which transports hundreds of climbers, skiers, hikers, and tourists every day to the top of this mountain. This makes the mountain infinitely more accessible and makes it possible to do many climbs and routes on Mont Blanc de Tacul, Aiguille de Midi, and other nearby peaks in only one day. Furthermore, the construction of the Cosmiques Refuge has allowed people to stay for multiple days at high altitude without having to carry extensive gear.
The main way most people reach Aiguille de Midi is via the Aiguille de Midi telepherique.
