Chamonix has a great number of stunning ice routes. On this trip we will climb the Goulotte Chere, a classic ice couloir in Triangle du Tacul, in the Mont Blanc massif. Join me!

Due to its easy access, Mont Blanc du Tacul is one of the most popular high mountain venues near Chamonix. Its north side, known as Triangle du Tacul, offers some gorgeous ice climbing spots such as the fabulous Goulotte Chéré.

On this day trip you will climb this classical ice route under expert guidance. Goulotte Chéré is an ice gully for beginners, with numerous escape routes. However, there is some danger of falling ice and you should be able to handle crampons and ice axes.

We will catch the Aiguille du Midi cable car, and after a half-hour hike we will reach the base of the ice waterfall. From there, we will head up a 3 or 4 hour ice climbing adventure.

Readily visible from Aiguille du Midi, the Chere Couloir offers some breathtaking views of the famous Vallée Blanche. You will enjoy a real sensation of alpine wilderness!

So, if you are up for this ice climbing trip in the Goulotte Chere, please contact us. I’ll be glad to guide you in the classic ice gully of  Mont Blanc du Tacul!

And if you are looking for multi-day mountaineering adventures in this region, I recommend my 6-day Mont Blanc expedition.

Thanks to Carlos and explore- share staff:) My experience with booking through explore-share and climbing to Mount Blanc with Carlos were fantastic! He is very easy going and flexible.

The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn\'t mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn\'t see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don\'t have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o\'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.
