Mont Blanc Ascent

Group and individual ascent
    Mont Blanc Ascent
    The roof of Western Europe, the mighty Mont Blanc, is 4,810 meters high and must be the most unique peak on this side of the globe for avid climbers and amateurs alike.
    Mont Blanc is undoubtedly the most famous peak of the Alps.
    In 1786, its first ascent was a turning point in the development of the Chamonix valley, which was then structured to meet the growing tourist demand.

    Despite its great fame, climbing Mont Blanc is a real challenge, requiring excellent physical fitness and good mobility skills over rocky and glacial terrain.

    Mont Blanc still does not deserve ridicule and remains one of the most physically demanding and dangerous peaks in the Alps.
    However, with prior physical preparation and a good training and acclimatization program under the close supervision of a guide, you will be in the best position for a successful ascent to the summit.

    For 5 days you will improve your skills in a group of three people (1 guide and 2 clients).
    Thanks to your guide's personalized advice and his big oolite, you have a very high chance of success.

    To avoid the problems of bringing strangers together, only duos can register.

    Or opt for the Individual Mont Blanc Climbing Program.

    Season after season, global warming is causing profound changes in glacier morphology.
    The usual route through Goute is no exception. The upper part of the route leading to the summit, and located at an altitude of about 4600 meters, has been transformed and is now a steep section requiring perfect crampons.

    In this regard, prior mountaineering experience of at least 2 days moving in crampons is now mandatory.
    Important info

    Climbing Mont Blanc, like all mountain climbing, is highly dependent on weather conditions.
    High mountains are also directly affected by global warming.
    Rising temperatures lead to a decrease in snow cover, which causes an increase in rockfalls.

    The usual route to Mont Blanc, and in particular the ascent to the Guthe refuge hut, is no exception.
    The mountain dictates its own laws. Therefore, the ascent may not be possible due to bad weather or unsatisfactory conditions.

    In this case, you will be offered another objective adapted to the conditions of the moment (for example: Gran Paradiso or Monte Rosa).

    The program described above is for information purposes only.
    It is subject to change depending on the group level, elevator operating times, weather and mountain conditions, etc.

    It is possible to change the overnight stay in the hut Tet Roose (3167 m) for an overnight stay in the hut Torino. (3375 м). Italy, for acclimatization. The decision is made by your guide.

    No changes to the program are non-refundable.
