Climbing Mont Blanc in 3 days (intermediate)

Join a certified guide on this 3-day ascent and get ready to conquer the roof of Europe!

Located at an altitude of 4810 meters and surrounded by some of the most popular peaks in France, the iconic Mont Blanc crowns the French Alps.

 

Adventurers and mountaineers come every year from all around the world to reach the top of this mythical mountain. With its thundering glaciers and stunning alpine landscapes, Mont Blanc is bound to stun you.
 

We will start our journey from the lovely village of Chamonix. First, we’ll go up to Aiguille Verte (3512 meters) which is an excellent mountain for training and acclimatizing. Then, on the second day, we’ll start up on the Goûter route, one of Mont Blanc’s classic routes. Although it is considered the easiest way to reach the summit of this stunning peak, its high altitude and elevation gain will require good physical and technical preparation. You can find a detailed itinerary below!

Itinerary

Day 1

 

During this acclimatization day, we’ll take on the Aiguille Verte (3512 meters) and refresh some basic mountaineering skills. In the afternoon, we will return to Chamonix.

Day 2

 

Early in the morning, we’ll review our equipment in Chamonix. Once we are all ready, we’ll take the cable car that goes up to Bellevue (1794 m) from Les Houches. From there, we’ll take the Mont Blanc Train that will take us to the Nid d’Aigle (2380 m) where we’ll start trekking. From Nid d’Aigle we have between 2 to 3 hours of approach to the Tête Rousse Refuge located at 3165m, where we will spend the night.

Slope: + 800m -0m / Time: 2-3h

Day 3

After a rather short night, we will get up at 2 in the morning to have breakfast and get to work. A long day awaits.  We will leave the refuge with all the necessary equipment (crampons, harness, helmet, etc.). Shortly after leaving the refuge, we will cross the famous bowling alley (which is safer to cross at dawn) and we will go up the famous road equipped with cables to the shelter of Goûter, where we will stop and eat something. Next up, we will go through glacial terrain and shortly we will pass near the Dôme de Goûter at 4304 m. We will have a nice view of the Vallot refuge at 4362 m and the summit of Mont Blanc with the edge of Bosses uniting them.

From then onwards, the ascent will become a little more technical and we’ll have to overcome the beautiful edge, sometimes quite narrow, passing through the two small peaks of Les Bosses (The Humps) at 4513 m. Then, a long ridge will take us to the long-awaited summit of Mont Blanc at 4810 m. We will descend through the same route to theTête Rousse refuge and Nid d’Aigle, then take the train back to the Chamonix Valley, where we will spend the night.

Slope: + 1650m -2500m / Time: 12-15h
