Grands Montets


icon-site Presentation of the Area

Winter Map

Two altitudes with two environments: the Lognan pastures at 1 970 m and the Argentière glacier’s seracs at the 3 275 m summit. A whole universe to discover… From the Aiguille des Grands Montets: the view of the Mer de Glace, the Aiguille de Chamonix, the Mont-Blanc and the Chamonix valley. From the Point de Vue (40 minutes walk from Lognan): the scenery of one of the most spectacular ice falls of the valley and the departure of mountaineers for the Aiguille Verte and the summits of the massif

    The glacier is dominated by three peaks of more than 4000 metres: the Droites, the Grande Rocheuse and the Aiguille Verte, from which suspended seracs regularly supply the glacier with avalanches..


    A tarpaulin covers the bergschrund of the Argentiere glacier to avoid excessive melting during the summer. Now in it’s 6th year of an effective use! Caution: Do not venture onto the tarpaulin.
