The Vallée Blanche

La Vallée Blanche
The Vallée Blanche

This route splits from Aiguille du Midi until the Tip Holbronner and crosses The Vallée Blanche, one of the zones but beautiful of the Alpes. The route can do in the two directions, that is to say from the Aiguille du Midi until the Tip Holbronner or from Tip Holbronner until the Aiguille du Midi. The description that do in this page corresponds to the first option.

The Vallée Blanche is a route with some points complicated. The first will find it in the descent to The Vallée Blanche from the Aiguille du Midi , that have to realise by the sharp oriental edge, quite impressive and something exposed, by what do not recommend that it descend without having a good experience in the technician of the cramponaje and the to walk encordados.

The second of the points where will have to loan attention is in the zone seracs next to the Tip Holbronner. The seracs are big blocks of ice fragmentado by important cracks in a glacier, whose break has to to the movement of the ice by zones where the slope breaks .
