Topic - Mer de Glace to Aiguille Du Midi

sbc_10 - on 14 Jul 2013
I was wondering how feasible it would be to work your way up the Mer de Glace and end at the Aiguille cable car station. Essentially this is the Vallee Blanche in reverse. Cannot seem to find any route descriptions for the trip or photo-logs. Does this mean it is not done, or is it not worthwhile or is it too risky in Summer?
Has anybody done it ? I was thinking of it as a training trip for my mate. With glacier skills lower down, then a high camp, then topping out with a spectacular ending...and not forgetting a nice cable car descent.

Any advice most welcome.

Many thanks.
Sean.
