The Aiguille du Chardonnet (3824m) is a beautiful summit, clearly visible from Chamonix. The steep, rocky walls are not deceiving, there is no easy way to reach this summit. The views and wild alpine scenery are amazing!
We have designed this 3-day course for those who would like to climb some of the best Chamonix alpine classics. You will spend 2 nights in the Albert 1er mountain hut, giving you the full alpine experience and maximising our time in the mountains.
We will take you up the Aiguille du Chardonnet via one of the following routes: the magnificent E Ridge; the Arete Forbes (AD/IV) and the equally interesting and beautiful North Spur, the Eperon Migot (AD+/IV). The Arete Forbes is a great climb that has it all: the glacier approach, a steep snow and ice climb to reach the ridge and an exposed ridge climb on a solid granite. The Eperon Migot is one of the best Chamonix ultra classic mixed routes. Both have the same descent, which is not to be underestimated. We deliberately keep the course ratio small on this course, with just 1 client to each mountain guide, so that you can proceed at your own pace.
