Mont Maudit - Kuffner Ridge (D)
This is the ridge route I climbed in the most beautiful scenario I ever witnessed. Having all the time under your nose the Brenva side of Mont Blanc, the Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey and the Grand Pilier d'Angle really makes this climb a unique experience. Maybe only the Peuterey ridge could give more.
Then, the ridge itself offers you some very intersting passages on rock, mixed and ice, sometimes tricky but never too difficult. The tip is to climb it in good shape and good conditions of the route. As we did, making the climb a real pleasure.
