Description

Chamonix is a classic destination for mountaineering. In this occasion, I invite you in particular to join me in a traverse of Vallee Blanche, in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif. 

This is a great option for a summer mountaineering adventure in a high mountain environment. The wilderness sensation and the incredible views are waiting for you!

We will meet at the Aiguille du Midi cablecar in Chamonix early in the morning, to make the most of this traverse. We will take the lift up to Aiguille du Midi, at 3800 meters. From there, we will descend the arete, which is exposed, until we reach the glacier, at 3500 meters. Then we will cross the glacier and head to Italian territory, progressing between crevasses. All the way we will be surrounded by stunning 4000ers. The panorama is simply magnificent! To end the day, upon reaching Punta Helbroner, in Italy, we will enjoy a break and take the cablecar down to Chamonix.

This trip can be planned as a one-day program or as a multi-day activity if we combine it with some other great ascents in the area. For example, we can also ascend Dent du Geant or the Cosmiques Arete at Aiguille du Midi. Other options include the Aiguilles d’Entreves traverse, the Pyramide du Tacul, the Trident du Tacul, the Tour Ronde or the Rochefort Arete. Or, if we plan an ascent to Mont Blanc by the Trois Monts route, this Vallee Blanche traverse is the perfect acclimatization program.
