Mont Blanc via Cresta del Aiguille Grises

  • Mont-Blanc
  • Alpinisme

Think this has a way to go before it is the new Italian normal. From the refuge to the ridge very loose, not waymarked. On gaining the ridge drop down quite soon onto easy glacier on left. Exit this via loose galley at its highest point (cairn not obvious). Cairns on route sufficient. CAI have very partially equipped this route, rather minimal 8mm / 9mm knotted cord on those parts I would consider to be AD, maybe 4 sections. Lots of loose large blocks throughout. Final snow arete narrow, no cornice, good conditions. Dome du Gouter, Mont Blanc good standard conditions. Solo ascent, long and committing, valley to valley. Good route which should improve over time.
