We will cross the glacial plateau of the Col du Dôme and after a short and steep slope we will reach the Vallot refuge where we will take a short break. Then we will continue along the Bosses ridge, sharp and with repeated slopes, where we will have to concentrate on breathing and put one foot in front of the other until we finally reach the top!
Arriving at the summit, a small photo shoot, a panoramic view, then a quick snack, and we will begin the descent. Remember that when you get to the top, you will have only traveled half way, you need to stay focused!

Arrival in Chamonix at noon and farewell after this intense and memorable week.
Snow and ice slopes from 35 ° to 40 °, with the conditioning of the altitude!
Easy climbing II and III degree. If you are used to rock climbing, you will feel much more comfortable on the way up and down Goûter.
However, it is recommended to practice some climbing to become familiar with the specific movements and techniques of this discipline and to make the ascent and descent to the Gouter refuge even easier. Attention to the assessment we put, "II and III or easy", are assessments of climbing and mountaineering aimed at people who practice it. This does not necessarily mean that it is easy for people who do not practice climbing or mountaineering.
Elevations of 800 to 1700 m depending on the refuge from where we leave.
Stages of 6 hours on average and 12 hours for Mont Blanc.
Very good physical condition is required. You need to get in good shape, the first 3 days are not meant to provide good fitness. Reaching the summit is only half way, the ascent ends when you return to the valley. It is recommended to practice endurance sports regularly: running, mountain biking ...

What does "two possible attempts to reach the top" mean?
This means that we either make the summit on day 2 from Tête Rousse, or on day 3 from the Gouter refuge with descent into the valley on the same day.
If an unsuccessful attempt is made during the ascent, for any reason, there will be no second attempt without additional remuneration, which will be defined with the guide.
Adaptation to bad weather forecast D2:
D1: climb to the Tête Rousse refuge
