Probably the highest 100% French summit, and the most beautiful one! With its 4122 meters, The Aiguille Verte is proud and prestigious. “Perfect proportions… majestic aspect… a beauty among the beauties… queen of the mountains… fascinating beauty…”, according to the writer Henri Isselin.
I particularly love this ascent because:
– it’s a mythical summit, an imposing mountain… the one we see when we are at Chamonix;
– it’s full of history and fascinating stories;
– it’s a worthy mountain… all of its paths are difficult.
“Before the Verte we are alpinists, after the Verte we become Montagnards”, said Gaston Rébuffat.
This adventure is 2-3 days long. I only ascend this mountain with clients that I’m able to prepare before, both technically and physically. This is a committed and hard course. We will be maximum two on the rope!
There are different ways to get to the summit:
– Whymper Couloir (88 meters long)
– Moine edge
– Grands Montets
Contact me if you are interested in this adventurous climb of the Aiguille Verte. We can also ascend other beautiful mountains of the Mont Blanc massif! I would be glad to talk about it with you, and define together a beautiful journey adjusted to your wishes.
