Description

The south end of the Mont Blanc massif. Mostly alpine snow/ice routes.

Usual sleeping base is the Refuge des Conscrits hut (GPS latitide longitude approx N45.7870 E6.7660).

Climbing peaks include:
  • Domes de Miage
  • Aiguilles de Tre la Tete
  • Aiguille Lex Blanc
  • Aiguille des Glaciers
  • Mont Tondu

This area is also the start of the "royal traverse" route mainly on ridges to the summit of Mont Blanc: From Refuge des Conscits over the Domes de Miage to Refuge Durier, next traverse over the Aiguille de Bionnassay to the Dome du Gouter, finish up the Bosses ridge to Mont Blanc summit.

crevasse hazard: The approaches to all the climbs cross crevassed glaciers, so come with appropriate planning and navigation skill and experience, and bring appropriate equipment for prevention and rescue of crevasse falls which you have practiced using in some realistic situations.

Getting There

Usually reached by hiking up from Les Contamines (a long ways from Chamonix) via the Refuge de Tré la Tête hut to the Refuge des Conscrits hut.
