Lac Blanc, France

16 October 2019

A spectacular hike from Montroc up to Lac Blanc and down to Argentiere, with wonderful views of the Mont Blanc.
Made even more beautiful thanks to some fresh snow above 2000m. And even more so by an encounter with a group of Alpine Ibex. I made a separate page for them...

Remarks The trail from Montroc up to Lac Blanc has a series of steep ladders and footholds you need to climb up along. If any vertigo, better to take the trail up from Argentiere and the same way down.
