The Aiguille Verte is an iconic mountain of the Mont Blanc Massif and it is always a pleasure to climb it. The Couloir Couturier is a classic and this year it has been in good conditions for a while
, I went with Julien to l’Envers des Aiguille to climb Children of the Moon l’intégrale at Aiguille de Roc (Mont Blanc Massif).
Morgan and I climbed La Dame du Lac at Aiguille du Midi (Mont Blanc Massif), a nice route overall with a very nice first half, especially the second pitch.
Aiguille Chardonnet (3,824m) is a beautiful peak of Mont Blanc Massif and the Arête Forbes (Forbes Ridge, AD, III), probably its most popular route.
Contamine, Labrunie and Vaucher opened their route on Aiguille du Peigne almost 60 years ago. It is a classic, nice, logical route and despite the reasonable grades (TD, 6a 400m), we ended up with pumped arms.
There are endless possibilities of ski touring between Argentière and Le Tour, including the famous 2 and 3 cols. This option is a 20 kilometers loop around the Aiguille du Chardonnet.
The Northeast face of Col des Cristaux is a 500 meters slope, just East of Les Courtes. I planned to ski it down but the snow conditions were not ideal, so I just climbed it up and down.
I took advantage of great snow conditions to ski down the Northeast face of Les Courtes in Mont Blanc Massif
No matter how many times I have climbed Aiguille d’Argentière, I keep enjoying it. From Les Grands Montets it’s a short and nice ski touring day, from Argentière it’s a long and good training.
