moderate route on Mt Blanc : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

I intend to climb mt blanc this august. My problems are that I donB4t want to go by the normal gouter hut because it dosenB4t seem to invole real climbing.I have previous mountaineering experience(use of ice axe and crampoons,crevass rescue etc) and I want to use it. I am also very fit.I am also alone.Do you know any routes with moderate difficulty that can be soloed.If not how can I find I climbing partner or a guide(what does a guide cost)
