Vallée Blanche Vallée Blanche

INTRODUCTION

The gondola between the Aiguille du Midi and Helbronner being closed for work, we must go to Italy, where we take the Skyway Monte Bianco immediately after the tunnel to go to the top of Helbronner Point at 3500 meters altitude. .
The Mont Blanc seems so near, yet so far, other 4000m summits surround us, and so it is here in this high Mountain decor, that we will effectuate the crossing from France to Italy, with its gaping crevasses and gigantic towering ice formations.

- Meeting point at the Chamonix Sud's bus stration, and meet with the mountain guide.
 
- Bus trip to the departure of the Skyway Monte Bianco that you will take. At the top, we have 400m thick ice underfoot.
 
- All ropes we walk towards the Aiguille du Midi in the heart of the high mountains. Many summits of more than 4000m of altitude dominate us.
 
-We will cross an extremely cracked area. We then remake to Helbronner to go down with the Skyway.
