French Alps, Mt Blanc (4,810 m)

This is considered to be the normal route up Mont Blanc, and ascends in two stages, but it should not be under-estimated. On the first day the climb takes you up to either the Tete Rousse or Gouter huts. Two hours separate these two huts, and if you are worried about acclimatizing the Tete Rousse is preferable, though it is a longer day on the summit climb. From the Aiguille du Gouter, the route ascends over the Dome du Gouter and then to the Vallot refuge. Here the route meets with the Grand Mulets route to the summit. The final ridge is one of the most spectacular snow ridges in the Alps.
