INTRODUCTION

Do you dream of climbing Mont Blanc and you have mountaineering experience? 
 
Join our 2 or 3 days course which is a gradual approach to optimize your chances of a summit.
 
This more traditional route via the Aiguille du Goûter is the most accessible route as it presents a less technically challenging ascension.  On saying that, it is not to be taken lightly and remains an interesting and magnificent itinerary, notably the passage 'des Bosses' where the narrow ridge will remain an intense and memorable moment.
 
After a 4 hour walk from the Goûter refuge, the summit approaches and you have Europe below and only the sky above, nothing blocks your view, you are at the summit of Mont Blanc!

PROGRAM

Meeting with your guide the previous evening to review the equipment required and the proposed program.
 
Day 1: 
• Meeting at the Bellevue car park in Les Houches.
• Cable car to Bellevue and train to Nid d'aigle (2300m).
• Hike up to Tête Rousse hut (3070m)  by the beautiful Les Rognes trail  or to the Gouter hut (3800m) where doing some scrambling in a wonderful place .
 
Day 2
• Early morning start for the Mont Blanc ascent (4810m) 
• Descent right down to Nid d’Aigle for the return on the train and then the cable car to Les Houches
 
This program is given as an indication. It can be modified according to the mountain and weather’s conditions and subject to the refuge’s availability.
 
In order to maximize the chances of successful ascent of the summit, we can also realize the ascent in three days. This program, more flexible, will either include a preparation day or a more gradual ascent planned according to the snow conditions and weather.
