The ALEPH detector at LEP has been supplemented with five scintillator telescopes. This CosmoALEPH experiment is operating at a depth of 320 m.w.e. under ground measuring the muon component of extensive air showers. The aim of the experiment is to look for the chemical composition of primary cosmic rays and to in vestigate the interaction characteristics of energetic protons and nuclei in the atmosphere in the PeV region. A first look at the cosmic ray data taken in dedicated runs with the CosmoALEPH experiment shows agreement of under ground muon data with gross features based on expectations from the muon content of extensive air showers in the atmosphere.
