  • 1st Day: The meeting will be in Courmayeur in our office; the mountain guide, after checking the material, will accompany you, with the car, at the Lake Combal from where our adventure will start, along the Miage Glacier. Surrounded by grey granite towers, you will admire the famous canals and northeast face of the Aiguille de Trelatete; you will reach then, the rocky ramps surrounding the Glacier du Dome. Going up with the help of some chains, you will reach the Gonella Hut, in front of the majestic west wall of Mont Blanc and the Glacier, carrying the same name
  • 2nd Day: Departure in the middle of the night to set foot on the Glacier du Dome, that runs up to the Col des Aiguille Grises. From here, we will carry on, along the ridge, to the Piton des Italiens, 4003 m, the first 4000m of the day. We will continue the ridge that becomes gradually wider and will allows us to reach the Dome de Gouter 4306 m. After a short descent to the Col del Gouter, we will start to climb again in the direction of Vallot Hut, where you will be warmed up by raising sun. After a short break to refuel, we begin the last part of the climb along the Bosses ridge. The final part is the most exciting, with the ridge becoming more and more horizontal and wide until the actual top. We are on the roof of Europe, and we just must enjoy the view! The descent takes place along the same itinerary, and still requires a good concentration.
  • 3rd Day: After the night of rest at rifugio Gonella we have a whole day to retrace backwards our steps of the first day and return to Val Veny at our starting point.
Meeting point: Our Office in Courmayeur, the time will be decided by the Guide;
