Departing from Saint-Gervais, you join the Nid d'Aigle refuge in trail gear to join your guide.
After a well-deserved break, your guide will give you the green light to gear up and start the final ascent to the top of Europe in the most traditional style :
the famous "One shot" Mont-Blanc by the normal route.
