Dent Blanche (4357m), 11 Aug 2019

By masterblaster - Posted on 12 August 2019

Another great day in the mountains. This time, with my friend "jurassien" Jeremy Buache, we climbed the Dent Blanche (4357m) on the Valais Swiss Alps.
We climbed it via the normal way, the South ridge.
On the 1st day we walked from the Évoléne valley to the Dent Blanche cabane/refuge 3507m. It was quite a walk.... 3h!!! 
On the 2nd day, we left the hut at 4am. We wanted to climb all the easy part of the route while it was dark, and get to the most technical part (the climb of the Gendarmes, there are 4 of them) when the sun was rising.
We got to the summit a bit before 7am. We had an amazing sunrise and some great panoramic views of all the Alps!
Coming down back to the hut is also a long way... it took us almost 3h.
A great day and another beautiful summit :) !!!!
