La Dent du Géant 4013m-Massif du Mont-Blanc

La Dent du Géant is one of the most beautiful peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif. Visible as well from the Aiguille du Midi or Pointe Helbronner, it is certainly the most comfortable and large climb from the Torino Gondola. Some days of summer waiting is important, some cordée are led to turn around because of their schedule too late and the risk of a storm. That's why we propose this course on 2 days to sleep in refuge for a morning departure.

Approaching from the Torino hut is a fairly flat glacier, then a mixed section of about 400 meters in tight rope up to the dining room. From here it is necessary to count 1h to 2H of climbing on a beautiful granite, the difficulties are clearly reduced by the presence of fixed rope which makes it possible to rise, a rather physical gymnastics with this altitude.
