Category:

Mountaineering

Route Gallery:

Route description:

A spectacular route that weaves it's way through glacial terrain past two 4000m peaks, Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit. An easily accessible climb that nevertheless is threatened by serac fall and avalanche, good weather and conditions are vital.

Required experience/skill level:

Intermediate – good crampons skills, fitness and acclimatisation required.

Length (in metres):

1200m from Cosmiques refuge

Time/duration:

1 – 2 days, plus acclimatisation.

The route will generally take around 5 - 7 hours from the Cosmiques refuge.

Starting point/base:

From Chamonix, up the Aiguille du midi cable car and a short descent to the Cosmiques refuge for the night.

Maximum guide ratio:

1:1 only.

Normal season:

June - October. Conditions vary month to month.

Links/ featured courses:

Lifts/huts etc:

Gouter refuge (if making a traverse of the mountain)

Aiguille du Midi cable car.

Comments/notes:

Although easily accessible using the Aiguille du Midi cable car, this is a serious route and should only be climbed in good conditions after acclimatisation and training. Our normal route of ascent is the Gouter route, which is much safer objectively, and also offers a guiding ratio of 1:2.

It is possible to make a traverse of the mountain by descending the Gouter route.

Up early to catch the frozen snow, and a bonus sunrise on the 4327m Nadelhorn.

Perfect conditions, and super quiet. We’re back here on the 30th August if anyone’s keen....?

All six of us to the top of #montblanc yesterday - great weather and conditions.

We even hung out at the summit for a while, a rare treat!

Thanks also to @claphamski for guiding.

Our next Mont Blanc trip starts today with the Grand Paradiso. Let’s hope this weather lasts 🤞

Managed to sneak onto the summit of the Grand Paradiso between two days of unsettled and stormy weather.

A little trail breaking was required. All good prep for #montblanc - we’re heading that way tomorrow.
