AN EXCELLENT 6 DAY ITINERARY TO CLIMB MONT BLANC WITH A MOUNTAIN GUIDE

Climb Mont Blanc with a guide, one of world’s ultimate mountaineering challenges.

The Chamonix Valley is dominated by the majestic dome of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in western Europe at 4810m. Every year the summit of Mont Blanc becomes the ultimate objective for mountaineers the world over, all striving to stand on top of the roof of Europe and look down on the major summits of the Alps.

Our many years of experience guiding in the region have equipped us with the knowledge to give you the best possible preparation and acclimatisation for your Mont Blanc ascent, whose difficulty should not be underestimated.

Chamonix Experience has developed this 6 day itinerary, with 3 days dedicated to the Mont Blanc summit attempt. This allows for more flexibility should bad weather intervene and maximises your chances of reaching the top. The three preparation days offer an exciting itinerary dedicated to perfecting your alpine climbing skills and allowing you to explore some of the most stunning locations in the Mont Blanc Massif. Your trip will include two 4000m peaks, with an initial climb of Italy’s highest mountain, the Gran Paradiso 4061m.

During this time, you will be taught glacier travel techniques and have plenty of opportunity to practice your crampon and ice axe skills in preparation for a safe and successful ascent; the final 3 days are for the Mont Blanc ascent itself. The guide to client ratios on this course are 1 guide for 4 clients during the preparation days and 1 guide for 2 clients during the 3 ascent days – this not only ensures a greater standard of safety but also maximises your enjoyment of the trip and your chances of a successful summit attempt.

We strongly recomend you to book your places on this course as early as possible, ideally by the preceding autumn. It will help us to book your places in the Tete Rousse and Gouter huts.
