Description

Starting from Courmayeur you can reach Punta Helbronner with Skyway Gondola.

Once there, ski over the Col del Flabeaux and head towards the Tour Ronde.

I choose to climb the "Normal Route" on the East Face.

The descent is super exposed and very serious.

Halfway down the north face be ready for a 90m abseiling (60m ropes for 2 abseils are suggested). At the end of the line you can skin back to Punta Hlebronner of ski the Vallée Blanche down to Chamonix. Best conditions around March-May.

I've skied it in December!
