We’ll start at the bottom of the Veny Valley where we’ll walk on a paved road until Combal Lake. From there we’ll climb the steep moraine towards the Miage basin. We’ll walk for about 2:30 hours on the glacier’s moraine. During the final stretch, we must face snow and ice terrain. The last part of the ascent will take us to the Gonella Hut (3,050 m), where we’ll have dinner and sleep.
Drop: 1,400 m
Ascent time: 4-5 hours
We’ll leave the hut by 1 am in order to attack the glacier. The extremely wild landscape stretches until the plateau under the Col de Bionassay, which we’ll traverse towards the Col des Aiguille Grises. From there, we’ll ascend the sharp and spectacular ridge with narrow stretches giving way to the wide slopes that take us to the summit of the Piton des Italiens. Without further difficulties we’ll reach the peak of the Dôme du Goûter, where our route joins the French Goûter route. From here we’ll pass by the Vallot Hut (4,362 m) and finally, along the amazing Arête des Bosses, we’ll reach the summit of Mont Blanc.
We’ll return down by the same route although it is often convenient to head to Goûter Hut and then to Les Houches, where you can catch the shuttle back to Courmayeur.
Drop: 1,800 m
Ascent/descent time: 12-15 hours
Courmayeur (Veny Valley)
