Description

Join me for this beautiful ascent on the Mont Blanc region, to Les Droites. The Normal Route consists in the ascent via the south face of this mountain. A great experience for experienced climbers, on one of the 82 4000ers in the Alps!

The usual meeting point for this program is Chamonix. From there, we will walk to the Couvercle hut (2,687 m) from the Montenvers station, walking on the glacier. We will spend this night in the hut to retake activity early morning next day.

Next day, we will begin our traverse to the summit. This particular route – the Normal Route – is considered the more direct way to reach one of the less accessible 4000ers in the Alps.

The Les Droites ascent starts at an elevation of 2,700 m, while the peak has an altitude of 4,001 m. The approximate climbing time to Les Droites peak is between 4 and 5 hours.

On our way to the summit, we will experience the wilderness and untamed nature of this area of Mont Blanc. And at many point, we will also have the unique luxury of being alone in spectacular, unmatched scenery. Among the spots we will go by are:

  •  the Glacier de Talèfre
  • the Aiguille Verte
  • the Jardin de Talèfre

The terrain on this ascent is mainly granite. It also involves 40-45° snow couloirs, and both rock and mixed bands.

The difficulty grade for this program is AD+.

About the guide

guide profile img

Hello! I was born in Patagonia, Argentina, and started practicing mountaineering from a very young age. Today I live in the mecca of alpinism, Chamonix, France. I work as a full time mountain guide here in the Alps, in Patagonia and in any place I get the chance to go to.

Whether it is rock climbing in the sun, or ice and mixed routes in the cold north faces in the Alps, I do everything with passion. Glacier travels, icefalls climbing, freeride, ski touring... Luckily the mountain gives us many choices.

I invite you to join me in any of my trips and activities!
