ascent by ascent by "3 monts" route

INTRODUCTION

A major route, more technical than the normal route, which will sublimate your mountaineering career.  The slopes are steeper and the duration of the ascension is longer. In choosing this itinerary, our view of the French and Italian sides is a picture post card environment. 
 
Tacul, Maudit and the Mont Blanc itself.  The second most popular itinerary for completing the Mont Blanc ascension.
 

PROGRAM

Meeting with your guide the previous evening to review the equipment required and the proposed program.
 
It is possible to consider the ascension via the 3 Mont Blancs in several ways. 
 
We will, however, choose the one most adapted to the mountain and weather’s conditions .
 
Day 1: Meeting at the bottom of the Aiguille du Midi cable car. Walk to the Cosmique hut, via the famous Aiguille du midi ridge and across the huge Midi glacier. Night in the Cosmiques hut 
 
Day 2: Summit day and return back down to the valley.
It takes about 6 hours from the Cosmique hut to reach the Mont Blanc summit. Roughly the same time will be needed to return to the top of the aiguille du Midi.

FOR WHO - LEVEL

To consider climbing the Mont Blanc over 2 days, previous mountaineering experience is required and also be correctly trained for this project.

You need to be fit, have a head for heights, be technically coordinated and be acclimatized to the altitude.
