Horace Walker with Melchior Anderegg and the guide of Courmayeur Julien Grange on June 30, 1868. Magnificent itinerary in a severe environment. On this mountain great mountaineers such as Whymper, Croz, Walker, Grange and Rey have written epic pages of mountaineering. Despite being lower than Mont Blanc, climbing the Jorasses is technically more difficult and more satisfying for mountaineers. The normal route is not very popular and is aimed at good level climbers. The view from the summit is truly spectacular, and dominates the entire Bianco range.


  • Day 1
    Departure from Courmayeur in Val Ferret from Planpincieux 1579 mt. In about 3h30 walking on the path, which in the final stretch is aided, you reach the Boccalatte refuge at 2803 Mt. The refuge was one of the first to be built on the Italian side of the Bianco in 1881. Dinner and overnight stay at the refuge.
  • Day 2
    Wake up at 0.30 am breakfast, 1.15 am departure for the climb. From the refuge, go up the glacier to the Rochers del Reposoir, continue on the rocky ridge with passages of the fourth degree. Cross the Whymper channel and continue on the glacier up to the rocky ridge which leads to the top in about 6 hours. For the descent, the same ascent route is used.
  • Average return times 12h with return to the valley
  • Total height difference uphill + 2629 mt.
