Description

This route packs in a significant climb from the bottom of the Chamonix valley up to La Jonction – the meeting place of the Bossons and Taconnaz glaciers.

You’ll get stunning close-up views of the Bossons glacier – the longest ice-fall in Europe - along the second half of the route, and reach a unique high point at 2589m beside the granite ‘aiguilles’, and creaking glaciers.
