Mont Blanc Ascent within 3 days
Day 1Mont Blanc railway to Nid d'Aigle, and walk to the Tête Rousse refuge (3167m)
Quiet first step for our ascent of Mont Blanc. First we take the Bellevue cable car that allows us to reach the Tramway du Mont Blanc to the Nid d'Aigle. A first easy part under the edge of Rognes and fast passage north face we came out on a snowy plateau at the end of which is the refuge of Tête Rousse.
The afternoon is devoted to rest and acclimatization enjoying the magnificent view of the north face of Bionnassay.
Attention: on the first two departures in June the ski lifts will not work, this will increase the duration of the hike (about 1000m of additional vertical drop) to arrive at the Nid d'Aigle.

Tranquil awakening and breakfast at the refuge. This is to equip at their own pace, then departure to the corridor of Gouter: we will have to follow the instructions of your guide.

Day 3Mont Blanc ascent.
Wake up at 2 hours, breakfast and departure: we head to the Dome du Gouter. We are moving to the front, the slopes are gentle and you have to take a calm and steady pace. With the night the notion of time disappears and we soon reach the Dome du Gouter to 4304 m. The day arrives and we are in the Vallot refuge-bivouac, which is not guarded and theoretically serves as a shelter for mountaineers in trouble. This is often where the sun joined us and with it a brand new force. The summit draws closer, the Bosses ridge begins, and for a few hours we will be between heaven and earth on a beautiful ridge and sometimes aerial. The guide will ask you to ensure that the rope is tight. Finally, after a final bump, ridge widens and the summit appears large and welcoming. Welcome to 4810 m!
The descent is by the same route to the Nid d'Aigle where we go in the Tramway du Mont Blanc. A final round of cable car in Les Houches and here we are where we get cars.
Walking hours : 10h to 12h
Denivelation + : about 1000m
