Ten thousand Mount Boet in the French Alps in the north of Chamonix is one of the highest mountains in the region with a definite trail to the summit. At 3,099 meters (10,167 feet) high, it is the highest peak on the Egoel Rouge and is a popular ascent, usually from the Valorsin Valley between the Col des Montets and the Swiss border. This route has no technical problems with walking or climbing, but involves about 6,000 feet or 1,800 meters of climbing on a return trip of more than ten miles, so for those who walk and feel energized, here is a The general plan of the ascent route is given.
Just across the Le Bouette Hotel is a path that leads up to the forest and is marked by Cascade a Berard, Refuge Pierre a Berard and Mont Buet. Follow this path, which passes through an incredibly enjoyable walk in the forest and passes the beautiful waterfalls of Cascade a Berard, which are marked in a short path from the path to the right. As the river crosses a wooden bridge, the path flows into the forest and eventually appears in a high, remote mountain valley above the timber line.
There are two routes to this valley. One higher on the slope of the right hand and the other lower than the river. They form a circular nature trail and meet at the foot of the slope leading to Pierre Bardard Shelter, so either can be used. The valley, which lies within the nature of the Iguelles Rouge, is a pleasant hike and awaits the arduous ascent of the future. It starts from under the shelter or cottage, where a sign leads the steep slopes beyond.
As soon as you reach the hut, the movement becomes faster and I want to say it becomes easier, but it is not so. The minimum height is reached quickly, and the views of Egoel Rouge open with a steady ascent from behind. This path is obvious and if it is somewhat difficult, it will be a simple task. Until there is a rocky area just below Col du Salenton, there is no problem finding the route. Here this path is marked by forts that should be sought because they mark the easy path through stone shelves and stairs that prevent problems. It will be a more serious challenge in foggy or icy conditions.
Once on top of the rocks, the path branches off and redefines. Left for Cologne (seen above) and right for Mont Buet. There is now a steady uphill walk that follows a good path and there is no longer a problem with the summit. After crossing the initial wide slopes, the ridge is obtained and the landscapes are especially spectacular in Mont Blanc.
The ridge is wide and easy, but there is another steep path to the end of the Arete du Mortine where a small communication tower can be seen above. After reaching the easy angled ridge, it is possible to easily walk to the adjacent peak, which is made of gray-gray stone and marked with a large hall.
The signs of this climb show six hours one-way, so allow ten hours up and down. I actually went under five one-way streets, but that was after a hot, dry wave, meaning there was not much snow to walk on. Most of the time I visit the Chamonix in the Alps during the summer hiking season, it snows on the upper slopes of Mont Buet. Most of the people who were climbing stayed at the Refuge Pierre a Berard, which divides the long walk into two days instead of a long walk.
There is another trail to the summit of Mount Boet. From Lac du Vieux Emmosson (refuge) to the north of Switzerland. It first scales the Le Cheval Blanc peak, whose name means white horse, before colliding with the northeastern ridge, which is equipped with fixed cables for safety. This route is still classified as mountaineering and not for climbing, but it is technically much more difficult than the route described here. Whichever way you work hard, you will get amazing views of the French and Swiss Alps. Enjoying!
