GLACIER DE TALèFRE


A classic range of peaks, perched high above what is widely considered to be one of the best situated huts in the Alps, a trip to the Glacier de Talèfre is always a pleasure. There are some fantastic routes and, whatever you climb, the scenery is (even by the high standards of Chamonix) breathtaking.
