Peillex thus intends to “show that there is no longer any accommodation” on the ascent of the “Roof of Europe”. “Even though we had advised against the ascent, (Thursday) evening, 79 people were at the (Goûter) refuge”, he added. “We are heading towards a disaster” This decision was taken because of the danger posed by the ascent of Mont-Blanc for several weeks given the drought, the heat wave and the heavy rockfalls that this causes, according to the mayor of the town of 5,700 inhabitants. Their growing number is an indicator of climate change. “We are heading towards a disaster”, alerts the city councilor, and “the passage of the Goûter corridor represents a real danger of death”, he insists. While the ascent has been discouraged since mid-July, “many” Alpines ignore the recommendations and go anyway to the highest peak in Western Europe. In agreement with the guardians of the refuges, the president of the guides of Saint-Gervais and the prefecture, this measure will be in force until “conditions return to normal”. “But with today’s weather forecast, we know that it won’t be before the beginning of September,” concludes Mayor Saint-Gervolain. On Wednesday, Jean-Marc Peillex announced his intention to demand a deposit of 15,000 euros from mountaineers who go against the recommendations, based on the average cost of a mountain rescue operation and the prices charged by the undertakers, although he has no way of legally requesting it.
