A tremendous way of climbing Mont Blanc. We are off the classic track, we are on the royal road next to the needle of Bionnassay. The ridge we climb from the Peak of the Italians 4002 m, landing place, is magnificent. The descent of the north face is spectacular because the route interferes between seracs in steady slopes. The heli-skiing presents the advantage not to spend too much time at high altitude and limit the risks bound to the height allowing to take advantage completely of the summit and its descent.

 

Descent: between 2500 m and 3500 m according to the snow coverage and to the chosen route (+ 850 m of ascent)

Ski touring: compulsory experience

Crampons hiking: compulsory experience
