A nice route on good rock, well equipped.


Coming from the tunnel, about a km before Courmayeur, take the road up into the Val Veny, (brown sign). At the first fork, keep left, signposted Pre de Pascal. At the Monte Bianco Refuge there is road on the left leading up to the Pre de Pascal, (bar/restaurant, top of cable car, ski schools,) where the road is gated. Park the car below this, just before the sign indicating private land.

Approach 35min

Take the path that starts up the centre of the ski piste, then traverses, more or less horizontally, under Mt Chetif, some chains etc. After 25-30 mins you descend some chains to where a rock buttress comes down to the path. Here you will see one or two bolts belonging to another climb. Continue on the path for another 3-4 minutes until there is a faint path, (maybe a cairn,) going up a steep grass slope for 50m to the foot of the rocks just to the right of a steep red wall.

Either abseil back down the route, (double bolts linked with rope and equipped with rings), or preferably, continue up to the summit of Mt Chetif, Madonna, 10 mins, superb views and walk back down the footpath to join a ski piste and so back to the car, (45mins from the summit.)


  • There has been a lot of bolting of new routes on the SE wall of Mt Chetif recently. The guides office in Courmayeur will have the up to date information.
  • An excellent route on good rock with the bolts close together at the main difficulties.

There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.


Helmet, 9 quickdraws, 60m rope if you want to abseil from R7
