Overview

Mont Blanc or Montblanc, is the highest mountain in the Alps, with a height of 4,810 meters. It is the highest point in the European Union and one of the highest in the rest of Europe, surpassed only by several mountains in Russia and Georgia. The ascent to Mont Blanc through the Goûter refuge or the route of the 4000's, is in the bucket list of many mountaineers. It does not present great technical difficulties (it is not necessary to climb), but having a good physical condition is is highly recommended , since these are days with a lot of positive gain, and also, it is necessary to have done a good acclimatization the previous days if possible. The ascent to Mont Blanc Express in 2 or 3 days with one of our certified guides, is designed to reach the summit in a reduced time with a cheaper price than the 5 days program. It is a good option if you want to acclimatize on your part and make the ascent with a guide. The 3-day ascent allows you to summit the mountain in a reduced time, and if we don't have the option of attempting the summit on the second day for whatever reason (altitude sickness, fatigue, weather...), there would be another opportunity to attempt summit on the third day. If you are interested in climbing Mont Blanc with acclimatization, we have the "Objective Ascent to Mont Blanc 4,810m in 5 or 6 days" program, with previous activities that will help us acclimatize and improve our technique.

Day 1 - Chamonix-Train du Mont Blanc - Nid d'Aigle (2.372m) - Ref. Tête Rousse (3.165m)

We will meet at noon in Chamonix, or in the parking lot of the Bellevue cable car (Les Houches), to go up to the refuge, since we have a short and comfortable approach. In the morning we will have time to prepare the backpack and do some shopping if necessary. Before starting we will review the gear and we will take the cable car that goes up to Bellevue (1,794m), from Les Houches. There we will connect with the Mont Blanc rack railway, which will take us to Nid d'Aigle (2,362m), where our walk will start.

From here we have a 2-3 hours approach, and about 800 meters of positive gain to the Tête Rousse refuge, located at 3,165 meters, next to the glacier with the same name.

Depending on the season, we can find snow from where the train stops.

Elevation gain: +800m -0m / Distance: 3.2km / Time: 2-3h

Day 2- Ascent to Mont Blanc (4,810m) - Goûter refuge (3,815m)

After a rather short night, we will get up at 4am to have breakfast and start our ascent. A long day awaits us. We will leave the refuge with the headlamp on and depending on the conditions, we will wear all the gear (crampons, harness, helmet, etc.). Shortly after leaving the refuge we will cross the famous bowling alley (safer at dawn) and ascend the famous path equipped with cables to the Goûter refuge (3,815m), where we will stop and have something to eat. We will continue the day, now through glacial terrain. Right after, we will pass near the Dôme de Goûter (4,304m), from where we will have a beautiful view of the Vallot refuge (4,362m) and the summit of Mont Blanc, with the ridge of Les Bosses joining them. From here, the ascent becomes a bit more technical and exposed, we will walk beautiful ridge, sometimes quite narrow, passing through the two small peaks of Les Bosses (Humps) at 4,513 meters. From there, a long ridge will take us to the long-awaited summit of Mont Blanc at 4,810 meters.

We will descend along the same itinerary to the Goûter refuge, all on glacial terrain, where we will spend the night.

Elevation gain: +1650m -1000m / Distance: 9.4km / Time: 10-12h

Day 3 - Tête Rousse refuge - Nid d'Aigle (2,372m) - Chamonix

We are already on the last day and we only have the descent left! Today it's also time to get up early, although not as much as the other days. We will prepare everything and begin the descent. It is advisable to get down as soon as possible, to pass the bowling alley in early hours. We will pass near the Tête Rousse refuge, where we can make a stop or continue to the train at Nid d'Aigle (2,362m).

In the event that we were unable to reach the summit the day before for whatever reason (altitude sickness, fatigue, weather conditions…), we'll use this day for one last attempt. We would have to get up early like the day before, and reach the summit very early so that we would have time to get the train back to Chamonix.

The descent will be by the same itinerary as the ascent.

Elevation gain: +0m -1450m / Distance: 4.7km / Time: 4-5h
