Description

The Innominata Ridge is a really exciting mountaineering tour. Through this route we’ll conquer the summit of Mont Blanc by its immense south face!

Let me invite you to a guided expedition through the Innominata Ridge. It is one of the most challenging southern routes to get to Mont Blanc. During these 2 unforgettable days, you will live a exhausting but rewarding mountain experience.

Across the Innominata Ridge we’ll face several strenuous rocky pitches as well as some mixed terrain (rocks and ice) reaching the Mont Blanc summit. Moreover, the entire ascent involves glaciers, snow ridges and big ice slopes. Like all the southern routes of Mt Blanc, the Innominata Ridge has an elevation change of 3300 meters that must be gained on foot.

Then, I’d like to share with you a sample itinerary of this program. Of course, it will depend on the snow and weather conditions of each day. Besides that, we must consider the dates of opening and closing of the lift facilities, which are established seasonally.

SAMPLE ITINERARY

Day 1

We will meet at the SkyWay cable car station. We’ll check the equipment and have a briefing. After that we’ll go to La Visaille, in the Veny Valley by transfer. Once we are there we’ll start walking towards the Monzino Hut at 2,561 meters above sea level. We will eat something there and then move to the Brouillard Glacier, where we must avoid the crevasses maze to get to the Col du Freney. After some sections of rocks we’ll finally reach the Eccles Bivouac (3,852 m) where we’ll spend the night.

Day 2

We’ll set off the Eccles Bivouac and climb the Col Eccles again. After that, we will walk down to the glacier on the Brouillard face. Here we must face some narrow and snowy ridges and climb up rocky fissures and ravines to reach the red towers. Then we’ll head left over rock and snow terrain in order to access the Brouillard Ridge. Now our route takes us directly to the summit of Mont Blanc, offering breathtaking landscapes along the way. Depending on weather, we can return by the Goûter Route or the Cosmiques Face.

Finally, let me tell you that I can take only one person with me. If you are planning to do this ascent with a friend I can call a colleague to come with us. The perfect months to enjoy this trip is from June to September.

So, don’t waste your time and contact me. I can offer you the most incredible expedition up to the summit of Mt. Blanc via the great Innominata Ridge!
