Day 1: gone up by cable railway of Bellevue to Houches to take the streetcar of the Mont Blanc until the terminus of the Eyrie. Gone up by the path up to the refuge of Tete Rousse (approximately 2:30 am). Then we continue up to the refuge of Gouter by the famous crossing of the corridor of Gouter (short but exposed) and the spur of Gouter, easy to climb. An edge of easy snow leads us to the new refuge of Gouter.

Day 2 : Early raising at night and having breakfast at about 2:30 am to leave with the frontal up to the Dome of the Snack ( easy walking), then the shelter Vallot or we shall have a break. Generally the sun gets up and the panorama opens, the view is exceptional, we leave on the Arete of Bumps, which leads to the summit! That's it, you are on the Roof of Europe, the view in 360 ° is extraordinary.

The day is not finished, and having taken advantage of the summit, it is necessary us to get down again up to the refuge of the Gouter to rest a little, before restarting for the Erperon du Gouter and the crossing of the Couloir, before ending with the easy path up to the Nid d'Aigle. 

That's it we can loosen!

It is of course only area code, it will be necessary to us to adapt ourselves to the hazards of the weather report as well as in the conditions of the mountain and the participants. In the last resort, the mid mountain guide remains only judge of the program whom he can modify because of imperatives of safety.
