Climbed it during my Trois Monts route solo traverse of Mont Blanc.
Summited as part of the Trois Monts traverse.
Summitted Mont Maudit during the "Trois Monts" traverse
I did it twice on the way to Mont Blanc, once with a friend and another time alone. 2007. Both times it was very sunny when I or we climbed the wall. Very crowded spot. Lots of waiting time. I remember there was a crevasse at the bottom of the wall. I had to hold on to the ice ax with more passion when did it alone. :-)In 2013 I went back there but weather was bad so turned around from the col of Mont Blanc du Tacul.
Great trip with Pete and Georg.
Finally got on this after dreaming about it on many prior visits to Chamonix. Excellent conditions thanks to a big snow year for the Alps. The Torino was full, so we started from the Cosmiques which made for a long day. I didn't care for the traversing under the Pointe De L'Androsace, but the rest of the route was beautiful and secure.
Free solo ascent made on the morning of Sept. 7th. From speaking to the staff at the Refuges Des Cosmiques, no one had summited this route in nearly 2 weeks due to a high avalanche risk advisory in effect and new crevice formations which were deemed difficult to spot because of fresh snow.
Close to 100 climbers at the refuge, 8 of us set out and 6 (4 person team and two soloists) of us made it to the summit.
It took nearly 12 hours to summit(2pm) - there was no trail after Mont Blanc du Tacul and we took a vertical ice climb through Mt. Maudit.
Climbed via the Küffner Ridge
Traversed Mont Blanc from Gouter to Midi & took in Tacul & Maudit en route
on the way back form MB to aguilles du midi. very nice and 47th 4000m for me
Very nice climb. Had the summit completely to ourselves, most people were going straight for Mont Blanc.
I climbed it after the Von Kuffner ridge, nice climb, and nice view
On the way to Mont Blanc from the Midi cabl car we climbed Maudit. It was icy at the top,but very nice!
After 12 years it is strange for me that I didn't drop in any crevasse (I climbed solo that route)
Climbed this fantastic route with a lot of snow but well "transformated". We skipped the summit as once on the shoulder we've been hit by a very strong and cold wind from N. Started from the Fourche bivy, crowded (but not over-crowded)

Climbed as part of the Traverse to Aig du Midi
Descending from Mont Blanc.Reached the slope below the summit,but not the top because too tyred.
is out of condition due to the small amounts of snow last winter and the following heatwave. there is little snow and now requires 30m ice pitch bottom 3-5 m of 95 degree ice the rest probably about 70 degree. we repeled down using a well placed very solid timber stake that is in situte at the top of the pitch.
We climbed the NW face of Maudit. There was a lot of snow, and we had to trace a path since it seemed nobody had passed there in sometime. The last part, after the bergschrund, was a bit steep. We descended from the W face, which was really icy.
