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.

Although the standard approach is to climb the route in a day from cable-car to cable car moving fast an efficient is a pre-requisite for this approach.
We are offering this climb also at a more relaxed pace as a two day trip (different pricing).
Meeting either in Chamonix for a shared ride through the tunnel or at the SkyWay Monte Bianco cable car terminal in Entrèves - well before the first cable-car up. Gear check.
Will get down to the glacier the approach Tour Ronde and climb the SE ridge to the summit then return the same way in time for the cable-car ride down to Entreves.
