Topic - Chamonix - summer 2013

frqnt - on 18 Oct 2012
I'm considering spending 7-weeks in Chamonix between May and July. My intention would be to explore at lower altitude and hopefully find a climbing partner when I'm there.

Before I go ahead and commit to an apartment, purchase guidebooks etc. I thought I'd make an appeal on here for advice;
I'm keen on mixed lines, will the weather conditions at this time of year accommodate this?
Are there ice routes, like Chere Couloir, that stay in reasonable nik throughout the year?
Historically, would Route Major on Mont Blanc or Croz/Walker Spur on Grandes Jorasses be suitable early in July?

Instant karma for positive input.
