Mont Blanc snow conditions in early June.

Jump to last reply

I'm finally coming to the Alps, and I want to try the highest peak. Well, I know the chances are low, but any help would help.

I'm going to be there in the second week of June.
1. How is the snow level (from Tete Rousse to Gouter ref.)?
I am planning to take the tramway du mont blanc to Mt. Lachat and getting to Gouter the first day. (time permitting, if I leave early). But excessive snow could cut me off.
2. If I do that, do I need a rope to cross Grand couloir? How long?(I have crampons and an axe)
3. Is it illegal to sleep in a Bivy (weather permitting)? (I'm not sure if I want to stay in a refuge) And how recommendable is it?

And...... is there anyone who want to join me?

(I have been to sierras, but haven't summited anything like Mont Blanc. )

Thanks a lot anyone :)
