TRIP DESCRIPTION

THIS WEEK WILL ALLOW YOU TO ACCLIMATE, LEARN TO MOVE IN THE ALPS AND CLIMB MONT BLANC THROUGH ONE OF ITS MOST AESTHETIC ROUTES, THE FOUR-THOUSAND ROUTE.

Without being an overly technical mountain, it is not an easy summit and requires good training and practice in the use of crampons. Its height must also be taken into account, which already requires a good acclimatization. Let yourself be accompanied to its 4808m summit.

Climb the highest peak in continental Europe with good acclimatization!

Do you have any doubt? Get in touch with the B4Experience team!

MONTBLANC MOUNTAIN HUT AVAILABILITY:

The popularity of Montblanc in recent years has made getting a place to spend the night in the refuges on the Gouter to Montblanc route very complicated.

Reservations for professional agencies open before Christmas and all places for the season are usually filled within a few months.

If your dream is to climb Montblanc, don’t wait until the last minute to book. Contact us and we will advise you.

ITINERARY

Day 1

Acclimatization Route 1, Argentiere Refuge

We will get up early from Chamonix to enter the Argentiere valley, a true alpine sanctuary where the ice of the glacier shines in the shadow of the great north where the most important pages of European mountaineering are written. Our steps will begin in the meadows of Pra Lognan and little by little between rock and ice will bring us closer to the wild refuge of Argentiere. Little by little we will gain altitude and acclimatization.

In the afternoon we will live on the Rabouin Ridge those emotions that Refubafat or Terrai or many others surely experienced riding granite blades that turn red in the light of sunset. Argentiere shelter.

day 2

Acclimatization Route 2, Aiguille de Argentiere (3901m)

If yesterday we gained altitude and acclimatization on rock, ice and challenging edges, while we got used to this alpine environment, today we will continue to do so, even higher, but on steep glacial slopes. In this way, the ascent to Col Maudit, the most technical part of our ascent to Mont Blanc, will not be more than a pleasant ascent. The Aiguille d’Argentiere is a veritable glacial pyramid propped up by impressive spurs of orange granite. An impressive viewpoint of the north face of the Droites, Courtes or the Aiguille Verte itself. A lighthouse on the border between France and Switzerland. Today is a day where we will feel like we are, at all times, in a true alpine ascent, in capital letters.

Day 3

Petite Aiguille Verte or Aiguilles Rouges

A calm ascent in clock time and at the same time a journey of edges that will leave our hearts in the clouds thinking about the abysses that surround the peaks. A day to really begin to think that Mt Blanc is already very close and that our acclimatization has reached the point of beginning to bear fruit. A beautiful and calm day to recover and gain strength.

ROUTE MAP

Day 4

Ascent to the Agulle de Midi and optional short route

Using the mechanical lifts of the valley we will arrive at l’Aiguille du Midi. With all the ascents that we have already carried out, we can opt for different plans: Arista de Cósmicos – mixed ascent of little difficulty and great beauty that is carried out in a relaxed way- or the ascent of the summit of Mon Blanc de Tacul –longer and harder but that allows you to crown that peak that we will pass by on the next day. You can also opt for a rest day in Chamonix and go up to the Cósmicos refuge in the afternoon. Refuge of the Cosmiques.

Day 5

Ascent Mont Blanc, route of the four thousand

Leaving the same refuge we will begin to climb the Mont Blanc de Tacul, up to its shoulder, saving the long hour that it would take to go through its top. Crossing the Combe de Mt Maudit we will follow the steep slope that leads to its pass and gives way to the slopes that lead us to Brenva. The first rays of the dawn sun will illuminate us with warm reds the five hundred meters that separate us from the top. A succession of blades and backs is our way to the top of the Alps.

The descent will be carried out by the Gouter slope, arriving if all goes well in Chamonix in the early hours of the afternoon. Mont Blanc, with its 4,808m high, will already be part of our alpine experience.
