Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2015


Long (25 km) roundtrip: Vallorcine - Val de tre les Eaux - Le Cheval Blanc - Pointe du Genevrier - Le Buet - Ref Berard - Vallorcine. 9,5 hour in total. Maps show trail bypassing Pointe du Genevrier, but it is easily climbed. Some cables on northwest ridge of Le Buet but VF gear not needed. Great weather and awesome views of the Mt. Blanc range.

tomshawAcclimatisation Walk/Peak.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


Walked up from Le Buet Village a.m. after arrival in Chamonix previous evening. Good acclimatisation Peak offering an overnighter if required at Refuge de la Pierre Berard. Didn't do this, in retrospect would have been nice..and easier. Plenty of snow still about but crampons not needed though axe carried Leki poles sufficed. Lovely weather and a great Summit had it to ourselves though plenty doing hut walk.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2010


Great day forecast so I thought I'd do something with it. Forecast was wrong, summit was stuck in cloud most of the time I was there, will have to go back to get the views. It was also crawling with people. Very very busy route.

A long slog with neve all the way from about 2300m to the summit. 14 hours all in from Le Buet and back. The weather turned fairly unpleasant as we ascended the final slate slope towards the weather station and the summit ridge and stayed that way for much of the descent, right down to the Col de Salenton. Some great glissading fun to be had though.

Climbed late-ish in the day and had the place almost to myself. Found it to be very good practice for Mt Blanc in terms climb length. Plenty of wildlife in the flat run-in to the climb proper.
