The climbing is wonderful, not difficult but sustained, exposed and very, very strenuous.

The approach is climbing in itself. The only way to get to the Quintino Sella hut is by the Miage Glacier and the Mont Blanc glacier. You can also get there by the Gonella Hut but is was closed when we where there (early in July) and it is dangerous in summer...

The Mont Blanc glacier was icy and it is much steeper that we expected.
Getting to the ridge from the glacier was easy and the climbing to the hut
is funny and very beautiful, but loooooong!...

Mostly did couloir next to ridge. Stunning remote place and route. Descended via Gonella hut for lift free ascent of Mont Blanc. Access to refuge via Mont Blanc glacier pretty hairy- got onto rock as soon as possible just as big chunk of ice/rocks came down. Recommend access via Gonella Hut if in condition.

Really good. Snow conditions terrible did mostly rock. Descent took way too long.

A real traditional way of climbing Mt Blanc, no cablecar or train, just long and strenuous though not hard. The route to the Quintino Sella hut is slightly different to described, leave the glacier at 2600m, go to just about the top of the grassy couloir and follow the ridge.
