Climbed for the first time in 1968 by C.Gren, G.Grisolle, A.Poulain, M.Ziegler et André Contamine the “Contamine-Grisole” is a classic technical route on the Triangle du Tacul and one of the slightly easier climbing routes on this face.
With perfect views of Arête de Peuterey on the Mont Blanc this route is a classic. We are offering this, longer, route in place of the ‘normal route’ to Tour Ronde due to reduced objective hazard and aestheticism of the line. Without being ‘out there’ climbing the SE ridge of Tour Ronde is still a serious and demanding day in the mountains and the perfect step-up from Aiguilles Marbrees traverse.
A classic and beautiful route to the summit of Mont Blanc which bypasses Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit. Slightly more technical than Gouter route, Mont Blanc by Trois Monts is an aesthetic climb to the highest peak of the Western Alps.
