Mont Blanc 4809 m

ITALIAN NORMAL ROUTE

Legendary Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps. This trip we will summit Mont Blanc from the Italian side. Italian Normal route is more demanding than the corresponding route on the French side, mainly because no lifts or other aids are available to approach. In other words, the whole journey from the valley to the top is done on foot. The journey starts from the Val Veni Valley on the Italian side from Courmayer. Next is a 1,500 vertical ascent along the magnificent Miage Glacier to Gonella’s hut. The glacier is located relatively low, so the start of the journey is a moraine moved by a glacier, from where little by little our way continues to the glacier itself. The area is so huge that a handful of other groups who might be on the area disappear there completely invisible. There are another 1,800 vertical meters from the Gonella hut to the top of Mont-Blanc, part of the journey is almost a knife-sharp section of the Bionnassay ridge towards the Dôme du Gouter. The return takes place the same route down.

 

This trip requires good physical condition and therefore cannot be recommended as the first Alpine climbing peak. Before the actual Mont-Blanc peak, during the week you will be acclimatized either on the only peak fully on the Italian side over 4000 m in Gran Paradiso, or some other similar similar peak. Such a trip in itself can also serve as the first Alpine climbing peak without the Mont-Blanc peak itself. We do the acclimatization together and in a guided way, as this greatly improves the chances of summiting Mont-Blanc. The peak of Mont-Blanc is at an altitude of almost 5,000 m, so the altitude begins to affect progress no later than after reaching 4,500 meters.

 

Min 2 people, max 4 people. For a larger group, ask for more information. Peak days require 1 IFMGA / UIAGM mountain guide per 2 clients.

Location Alps Italy and Switzerland

Legendary Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps. On this trip, you will climb Mont-Blanc along the Dômes de Miage ridge to the Bionnassay ridge, from where the journey continues to Mont-Blanc. This route is demanding to the highest peak in the Alps. In addition to good fitness, it also requires rock climbing skills.

 

If you’re looking for a challenge for yourself, here it is. We climb the ridges mountain guide per customer ratio (1: 1) due to the technical complexity of the route. After acclimatization, begins the breathtaking Dômes de Miage ridge, from where we ascent to the Bionnassay ridge itself. On this ridge we climb cliff right at the morning, after from the top of Bionnassay you continue a good way towards Dôme de Gouter on almost like knife blade snow ridge. From the Dôme de Gouter, you will join the basic routes to the top of Mont-Blanc. On way Back, the aim is to desent on the Italian side, and return down a different route, but this also depends on the conditions on mountains.

 

This trip requires good condition and therefore cannot be recommended as the first Alpine climbing peak. Before the actual Mont-Blanc peak, during the week you will be acclimatized either to the only peak fully on the Italian side over 4000 m in Gran Paradiso, or to some other similar similar peak. Such a trip in itself can also serve as the first Alpine climbing peak without the Mont-Blanc peak itself. We do the acclimatization together and in a guided way, as this greatly improves the chances of topping Mont-Blanc. The peak of Mont-Blanc is at an altitude of almost 5,000 m, so the altitude begins to affect progress no later than after reaching 4,500 meters.
