Hi, was wondering if anyone has climbed Mont Blanc at the end of August/Begining of September. I'm looking to find out what kind of conditions to expect.
Thanks

In reply to Hammy78:
Varies all the time. What route / routes are you thinking of? Do you mean ground and / or weather conditions?
Weather can be more stable beginning of September compared to early August. The Tacul slope can have gaping / more challenging bergschrund as snow bridges melt. Apart from around the Tete Rousse hut the Gouter Ridge to the hut is likely to be free of snow / dry. Haven't done other MB routes at that time of year. Have fun!
