/ Easy Cham Scrambles
It's bolted with lots of trees for slings - 40m rope will be enough and 8 quickdraws plus a few slings for trees.
It's a great day out, straight forward climbing and incredible views.
It's a nice walk in through the woods too. Laaavely
Cheers guys. Completely forgot about those, brain glow! Anything up on Brevvent?
A lot of the hut approaches offer good scrambles and great VF!
The Couvercle hut has a great set of ladders. You have to cross the Mer de Glace, but should be OK without crampons, as it's mostly moraine. Check first though.
Also, I can think of a lot of worse ways to celebrate an anniversary than having dinner in the Lac Blanc hut, watching the sun set over the Mont Blanc range on the opposite side of the valley.
At a much easier level, a circular walk from Le Buet up the Tre les Eaux valley (some chains / laddes / easy scrambling) to the Point de la Terrasse and then down past the Loriaz hut is fairly spectacular. Older guidebooks talk about how grim and loose the descent from the Col de la Terrasse is, but it seems to have been sorted out recently, with waymarks to keep you on the nice stable bits.
