Those who want to find freedom in the mountains should now avoid certain summits. As already on the Matterhorn, where you have to book a reservation in the Hörnli logde, there is now also on Mont Blanc an ascent restriction. Summit aspirants who wish to reach the summit on the north-western side of the mountain from June 1 to September 29 must reserve at least one reservation for one of the three lodges (Refuge du Goûter, Refuge de Tête Rousse and Refuge du Nid d’Aigle). on the way. Wild camping is no longer allowed. Anyone who gets caught, threatened with 30,000 euros fine and up to two years imprisonment. Due to the limited number of beds in the refuges mentioned, the number of summit aspirants in the normal route should therefore be considerably reduced this season.
