Whenever you first come in the Chamonix valley, one particular always steals the show: les Drus, especially seen from the village of les Praz. Its west face is an incredible sheet of vertical granite leading to the pointiest of summits, towering more than 2,500m over the valley floor. The other crazy thing about the face is how new it is: since the fall of the Bonatti pillar in 2003, many routes were completely erased and others badly damaged.

This image showcases the new routes on the west face, as well as the ones that are still standing and have been climbed since the rockfall (it's a short list), as well as a few keys routes of the Nant Blanc face of Aiguille Verte.
