      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mont Blanc in April/May

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a two week climbing trip to Mont Blanc in either late April or mid-May. (I know that's not too specific, but the plans are just starting to come together.)


I am looking for alpine climbing partners (snow/ice/rock). If anyone is going to be there or knows anyone who will I would love to talk to you/them.


Also any route suggestions would be appreciated as I have never been.

The lifts may close but not all of the telepheriques. Many of the huts are fully open (i.e. staffed) for a limited time in the winter/spring months. When not staffed the huts always have winter access. However, they might be quite cold so you should be prepared to have all your gear.


During April and May many huts are staffed as that is prime time for skiing for the Haute Route and for climbing many of the classic faces that melt out in the summer.


I will be over there again for the last three weeks in April climbing and skiing. Send me a note with your abilities and I can try to make a few suggestions.
