Route: Mont Blanc (France)

Location
France
Distance
27.2 km
Description

The variations we currently track are:

  • Round trip from Chamonix
    Kilian's route
    Chamonix - Mont Blanc Tunnel- Grands Mulets- Vallot- Summit - same way down
  • Round trip from Courmayeur
    Meraldi & de Gaspari's route from Courmayeur in Italy
  • Round Trip from Les Houches
  • Round trip from St Gervais
    St. Gervais is a village also closely tied to the mountain. The track starts at the church of St. Gervais (800m) and first follows the main road to limit the altitude gain (already +4000m height difference). From Le Champel the route follows the Bionnassay valley up to Nid d'Aigle where the normal summit route via Goûter hut is followed. Descent via same way.

Other variations are certainly possible.

 

Comments

Some great FKTs are set on Mont Blanc, from.Chamonix (Kilian) and Courmayeur (Marco). However, none seems to be set yet from St. Gervais, a village also closely tied to the mountain. The track starts at the church of St. Gervais (800m) and first follows the main road to limit the altitude gain (already +4000m height difference). From Le Champel the route follows the Bionnassay valley up to Nid d'Aigle where the normal summit route via Goûter hut is followed. Descent via same way.
