Mont Blanc Massif
For climbs in the Nant Blanc Glacier (N and W faces) either: Take the Grand Montets lift, traverse levelled to the GM ridge, cross it and descend via a 350m couloir (loose rock, 1 abseil in the bottom 3rd)to the Nant Blanc glacier.
Or take the train to Montenvers, descent to the glacier and walk up for 400m, climb the moraine in the opposite side and follow a faint arette to the bottom of the climbs.
Excellent bivy spots in the rognons below the W and N faces.
For routes in the South and SE faces, walk up the Charpoua glacier from the hut for 350m and work your way left through the crevasses after the rock spur.
