The normal route to the summit of Mont-Blanc, via the Goûter hut, has the alpine grade PD. It starts from the end of the Tramway du Mont-Blanc, via Tête Rousse hut to the Goûter hut and from there via the Arête des Bosses to the summit. This route is the ‘classic’ route and offers the best chance of success in reaching the summit.
The trip usually starts with 2-3 days of acclimatisation and training. We can do this in different locations such as the Albert 1er, Trient, Cosmiques or Torino huts. It is also possible to combine the Mont-Blanc ascent with an ascent of Gran Paradiso in Italy.
The last 2 or 3 days are focussed on the Mont-Blanc ascent. We will climb Mont-Blanc via the Goûter route, staying in either the Tête Rousse hut or the Goûter hut, depending on the weather conditions. Another option is to stay in both huts over 2 nights to give us a greater chance of reaching the summit. We will summit Mont-Blanc on the last day of the programme and return to Chamonix the same day.
When to climb Mont-Blanc : from beginning of June to end of September. Depending on uncontrollable variables such as weather and snow conditions, we may have to change the programme at the last minute.
