Ligne Blanche

First ascent: J. L. Amstutz, R. Vogler, 1990
By: Roberto Rossi
Area: Graian Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Chandelle du Tacul, Country: France

A nice route with two outstanding pitches! The third is a vertical slab up a series of small crimps, while the fifth is a long, Yosemite-like overhanging crack. Unfortunately this pitch is often wet at the start of the season.

ACCESS

From Rifugio Torino (3375m) traverse west towards Col des Flambeaux. From here continue beneath the cable car and left to then continue at altitude towards the inconfoundable Grand Capucin. Continue left past Trient du Tacul to reach the Chandelle du Tacul.

DESCENT

Abseil down the combination Bonatti-Tabou (to the left, shoulders facing the glacier).

GEAR

Friends up to #3.5 (for the penultimate crack pitch).

Bellissima via che presenta diversi stili di arrampicata.Il tiro nel fessurone e veramente bello e meno difficile di quanto sembri. Nota negativa: gli spit sulla fessura si potevano evitare

Il penultimo tiro di fessura è veramente entusiasmante, bello anche l'ultimo, combinandola con la "Bonatti" diventa a mio parere più apprezzabie come linea ed omogenea nelle difficoltà.
