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.

Another day of laps in the trees. Low angled slopes avoiding the avi hazard and trying to keep out of the wind. Pretty wild weather at the moment.

Superb weather and soft snow on the Vallee Blanche today. Even got some fresh tracks, although not shown on this video.
A pleasure to be skiing and guiding the white valley again 👍⛷
