Why choose a trail at Mont Buet, France?

This ascent is located in Haute Savoie in the Mont Blanc Massif, in the Rhône Alpes region

The ascent of Mont Buet is totally outside the scope of a family climb. This trip can be considered the end of a period of climbing with varying degrees of difficulty. Certainly, the goal to be reached is extremely high, the distinction in stature is vital, and the route extremely long.

Some specialized challenges are experienced: path just after the shelter, section of huge stone squares at risk, snow fields and hard snow patches at the highest point during almost the whole year. The last move after the 2800m elevation gain also requires a lot of work to get to this moon-like arch where the feeling of height is over.

The scene at the highest point of Mont Buet is eminent and will quickly make you forget the attempts made. Since the race is long and the elevation gain is high, you should not forget the typical precautions before each ascent: indeed, look at the climate gauge, be accompanied by a guide and take comfortable clothes.

In late spring (late June-mid July), crampons are useful for snowfields and hard snow patches, especially at the summit.
