Hoja  Tour Mont Blanc (Chamonix-Courmeyeur)...

Within the large media paths that do not necessarily involve mountain climbing or ascents the summit, the Alps could not fail to have an itinerary that gave full circle to the highest peak in Western Europe through 3 countries: France, Italy and Switzerland .

An easily organizable itinerary as it is dotted with shelters, hostels and mountain huts where they offer you need to not have to be loaded with everything from the start.

It's a mid-mountain route, suitable for everyone who is familiar with the mountain.

Pass by legendary hills, gazebos, forests ... It is clearly marked with the typical red and white bands and numerous guidance posters. Also with the initial TMB yellow. With all this it's almost impossible to miss.

When circular routeYou can start where you want. In principle, of French influence and that is good to leave the car in a more or less safe and free for 8 days instead, start Les Houches in the opposite direction clockwise (we can leave the car in the parking cable car will Houches to Bellevue , is free in principle is for people who use the funicular but there is no control).

The route we suggest here corresponds to Tour of Mont Blanc from Chamonix (France) to Le Courmayerur (Italy) , with two special features. One is that the trek we did with the Mule called "Monsenyor" which trotted around the trekking with us, taking part of the luggage, took them about 7 kilos Monsenyor our beloved, and the rest, about 9 kilos on our backs as we transported . The other feature is that instead of making the round by Switzerland Tour, we close the circle on Le Courmayeur and from there returned to Chamonix , across the Glacier Giant Giant Coll from Aiguille du Midi to .

The total route is about 100 km. in 7 days.

7. Maisson Vielle - Chamonix


Distance: 16 Km.Up/Downhill 1.141 m. - Up/Downhill 1.588 m.
Maisson Vielle - Chamonix

path trav & eacute; s Dolonne . We descend steeply in two hours to Le Courmayeur with three different objectives, some would continue hiking on the Swiss side, other cog & iacute; n the telef & eacute; rico to Chamonix by Aiguille du Midi, and other cross & iacute ; e the Giant glacier walk to climb the Aiguille du Midi


In the descent to Le Courmayeur views on the Courmayeur Mont Blanc (4748m), Mont Maudit (4465m), Aiguilles Noire (3772m) and Blanche Peuterey ( 4112m), the Dent du G & eacute; ant (4013m), the c & uacute; pula Rochefort (4015m) and the Grandes Jorasses (4208m)


Once we arrived at Le Courmayeur, we walk you Courmayeur to the Phone & eacute; rich Palud , amounting us to the Coll Flambeaux near the Coll du G & eacute; ant, which gives its name to the glacier we will go. Once in the Coll de Flambeaux, put crampons, harness & eacute;s and roped. Food and begin the walk.

From this coll started our crusade, very good, very good, did not know & iacute; d & oacute masters; nde us out & iacute; a


Shortly slope, ups and downs, the infernal no time, but with few views because the day was quite cloudy. The gu & iacute; assure us that AFTER & eacute; s first exchange Coll meteorology, but it was not so. Frio.

We walked down the glacier by the Coll de Gres Rognon, the Giant's Tooth, the edges of Rochefort and les Grandes Jorasses.

When we started to leave the flat part of the glacier to our left we see the Shelter Cosmiques them , where target those who plan to spend the night and next day attacking Montblanc. Our goal was not that, was to cross the glacier all right and climb up to the ridge that lead us & iacute; aa cave entrance to the Aiguille du Midi . Five hundred meter drop us separaban our objetico and creepy ridge, Glacier one hand and the other at approximately 2,800m below our Chamonix . An adventure for our resources.

The beauty of the glacier but also impress our retinas & eacute; n scares us, that's the truth and especially the ascension & oacute; n end of the ridge to the Aiguille du Midi . First level of mountaineering is considered. Climb with crampons and trekking poles without ax. A whole recklessness by the gu & iacute; a. At that time the forces did not give you at all, m & aacute; s that follow the rope, not think and draw strength from where there had & iacute; a. To finally reach your goal

Unfortunately we arrived at the Aiguille du Midi, i the last telef & eacute; rico to Chamonix to and half hour hab & iacute; a party room & iacute; masters arrived at 18:30, and STILL latter was at 18pm. We had to stay overnight in basinsthe station & oacute; n the Aerial Tram, & uacute; nico site where all nights bed & iacute; a air conditioning because the rest into an impossible cool. Finally, a n & eacute; anecdote in what was the ascension & oacute; n. We encourage anyone who wants to get started in this adventure before deeds prove more f & aacute; cult because suddenly you acojonas lot and raz & oacute; n. A negligence by the agency.
