The Aiguille de Chardonnet offers multiple moderate to difficult ice gullies all more or less of similar length and character. It is one of the best mountains in the Mont Blanc massif to train and solidify ones ice climbing and mountaineering skills. The usual procedure is to hike up to the Albert 1er hut on the first day, climb a route and descent back to the valley on the second day. This is the place to come to for first difficult and steep ice routes.
