Mont Blanc Cross

August 9, 2014
Chamonix cross-country skiing

Starting from the paragliding landing field the route climbs steadily towards the upper valley, progressively passing through the hamlets of "les Bois" and Lavancher before reaching Argentière (1250m). Runners will bypass the village of Argentière and reach Le Planet by the "chemin des rambles". Then, you will run on a local road, closed for the event, on 500m to go to Montroc.

Then, you will arrive in the hamlet of Tré le Champ, a pretty village based right before the Col des Montets, from where you will go via the Balcon Sud.

After crossing the magnificent Charlanon comb(1812m) the climb is gentle on a balcony path, with one of the most beautiful views of the Mont-Blanc, to reach Altitude 2000.

The organisation insists on the fact that, according to the software used and the adjustments, the gpx files may have very different results (a vertical gain from 1485m to 1981m for the 23km).
