Anyone walking in the street of Chamonix can not pass by the statues of Balmat and Paccard, the first ascensionists of the Mont Blanc in 1786, proudly facing the summit.
From its 4810 meters high, it is the highest peak in the Alps, on the border between France and Italy.
Mont Blanc seems within reach, accessible, but it is a real alpine climb, long and demanding, that requires a proper physical and technical preparation.
People also need to be guided there.
