Hill features

The Combin de Corbassière is well known summit in the western part of the Pennine Alps. Although, far less popular than its neighbour, the Grand Combin, the summit is climbed frequently in both summer and spring. Most climbers use the Combin de Corbassière as acclimatization climb for the Grand Combin. 

Unfortunatly the normal route has become increasingly difficult due to global warming. Still, the normal route is a pretty straight forward glacier travel with some scrambling and easy climbing passages near the summit. The summitview is stunning and stretches all the way from the nearby Grand Combin to the Mont Blanc range,Bernese Alps and Monte Rosa Group. (From
