Mont Blanc in 2 days for the advanced climber

Take part in a 2-day adventure to the Mont Blanc (4810m) summit via the Gouter Route, the easiest route to the top of this iconic mountain in the Alps.

 

This trip will start from Les Houches. We will take a cable car and a tramway to Nid d’Aigle and climb up to the Tete Rousse Hut. Finally, we will arrive at the Goûter Hut (3817m), where we will enjoy dinner and rest to prepare for the ascent on the next day.

 

On day 2, we will take advantage of the sunlight and leave the hut at 3 AM. On the way, we will cross a glacial plateau and reach the Dôme du Goûter (4250 m). From this point, we will continue the ascent to the Vallot Hut and, when we get to the end of the Bosses Ridge, we’ll finally reach the summit of Mont Blanc. We’ll return down to Courmayeur after a long and intense climbing day.
 

Although the Gouter Route is the easiest way to summit Mont Blanc, keep in mind that it requires a big physical effort. That’s why you will need to have a very good fitness level as well as prior experience walking in crampons and using ropes and ice axes. Participants should be fit enough to walk on a glacier and hike uphill for about 12 hours. Take into account that there will be some demanding sections with rockfall danger due to the melting snow. Previous acclimatization is also key for a successful climb.
 

After an intense physical effort, the rewarding feeling of reaching the top of Mont Blanc will let us forget about everything except for the spectacular scenery surrounding us.
