To be eligible for this itinerary you should already:

  • have experience with crampons and ice axe
  •  have a good fitness level (400m height gain per hour for several hours)
  • be already acclimatised

If conditions are difficult, the pace is too slow or so we plan ahead we might find ourselves in need to spend a night at Refuge du Gouter or Refuge Tete Rousse or Refuge Nid d’Aigle (all with prior booking) and descend with the first cable-car the next morning. In this case the trip will be billed as a 3 day trip.

The ascent route is exposed in places to avalanche danger from large ice-cliffs (seracs) and on descent to rockfall above Tete Rousse hut. The release of ice avalanches is unpredictable and the avoidance of rock-fall difficult. It is essential that fitness, your ability, and conditions allow you and your guide to move quickly through these hazardous zones. The guide’s appraisal of your competence and route conditions will determine whether the climb can be attempted, or an alternative objective proposed.

Itineraries

Day 1

Meet up

After doing a gear check at our meeting point in Aiguille du Midi, we take the cable car to the last station. Then, we will go through a glacier and spend the rest of the day at Cosmiques hut (3613m) where we will do some snow-craft exercises. In the evening, we will have dinner and spend the night at the refuge.

Day 2

Mont Blanc summit and descent

On the second day, we will start off early for the summit of Mont Blanc. We will cross the Col du Midi Plateau and begin our ascent up by skirting around the North face of Mont Blanc du Tacul. After we will continue towards the North face of Mont Maudit and just below the Col du Mont Maudit we will encounter the steepest, usually icy, section of our climb. Finally, we will traverse southwards to Col de la Brenva and carry on all the way to the summit. From the summit we will start the descent by the 'normal route' via Dome du Gouter. After a short food-and-drink stop at Refuge du Gouter we will carry on past Refuge Tete Rousse and down to Nid d'Aigle where we will catch the last train towards Bellevue and then last cable-car to Les Houches.

  1. :

    I had been looking at the climbing trip to Mont Blanc for more than 2 years. Was my pleasure to work with Cosmin, a great guide really taking care of your safetiness.

  2. :

    “I climbed the biggest mountain in Western Europe”. These are the words I got to tell everyone when I got back home. It wasn’t easy, I was exhausted, it was a challenge but it was fun and I enjoyed it. I wasn’t affected by the altitude, we crossed a crevass on a ladder at about 4am which was an experience I enjoyed, we were lucky with the weather, the huts we stayed in were great and much better than what I was expecting for a hut after being in a hut in New Zealand.
    Cristina made me feel safe the entire time and this means so much to me as I come from a place of sun surf and sand, much different that the terrain we were in during this adventure. I look forward to climbing with you again.

    My girlfriend Paulina and me achieved the hardest thing in our life by doing the Trois Monts guided by Cristina and Cosmin.
    I’m very thankful to Cristina for achieving to reach Mont Blanc with a feeling of safety at all times. So important for beginners like us, we are so grateful. Cristina, thanks for the amazing guiding experience and making sure we achieved this, yet without inconsiderate risks. All the best with the next climbs 🙂
    Cheers
    Paulina and Charles
