Mini-expedition at the Mont Blanc (4810m), through Conscrits - Robert Blanc - Gonella - Goûter

A cocktail of many things typical of expeditions : a summit that requires acclimation to altitude, a long journey during which we have to face unexpected weather conditions, wild & remote routes (yes it's possible even in this area !), a complex trip, and a fantastic team !! Day 1 : Conscrit refuge. Day 2 : Mont Tondu & traverse of Tondu pass. Day 3 : Dôme des Glaciers. Day 4 : traverse of the Seigne pass & way up to Gonella refuge through the Miage glacier. Day 5 : Aiguilles Grises. Day 6 : wake up at midnight for the Pape route, the normal route to Mont Blanc from the italian side, 1800m of elevation difference, and then way down to the valley.
