Jacques Balmat: First ascent of Mont-Blanc

Seas and oceans of the world are not the only ones to hide treasures of an inestimable value. In Chamonix, the legend tells us that stone giants live on our summits. They sculpt crystals in the heart of the most remote mountains. Many men died trying to robe those precious gems. But one day a Man with no wife and no kids came down alive. On his deathbed, the story says he addressed his will to his youngest brother revealing where his chest full of secrets was hidden. The youngest brother was bad finding his bearings. He never found the chest. Almost 200 years later, the Will is always bequeath to the youngest brother. Only one sentence that does not make sense could allow the beginning of the research:


Once everyone is equipped at the Legend CHX shop, I will lead you to the brother’s descendent place to get a copy of his will. If we find the key to crack the code, we will go for a 2 hours adventure on a mountain bike (or 3hours by feet) solving clues one after another to put your hand on this booty!

The brother’s descendent will be grateful and will make a bargain with you for a fair reward!
