Mont Blanc 3 days extension

A 3 day Mont Blanc ascent designed for Chamonix Experience clients who have recently completed one of our preparation courses. Climbers are already acclimatised and familiar with crampon and ice axe techniques.


Then this summit attempt is for you!


More flexibility to maximise your chance of summiting.


We hit the ground running with this trip, heading straight up to the Tete Rousse refuge on day one, so you will need to be ready and acclimatised for high altitude mountaineering before we set off. Spending some time in the Chamonix valley or other high alpine area prior to your Mont Blanc ascent would be ideal.

This trip runs for a maximum of two clients per guide, so you will have an excellent quality of guiding and a truly personal experience.

This is an exceptional trip for experienced climbers who only have a short time frame to schedule in a massive experience – do something different with your weekend and summit Western Europe’s highest mountain!

To undertake this trip you must have a good level of physical fitness and sufficient experience in mountaineering. If you are in doubt of your capabilities then consider signing up for our Climb Mont Blanc 6 Day Course instead, which includes 3 days of training and acclimatisation prior to your summit attempt – you’ll also get to see a whole lot more of the Chamonix Valley and the Mont Blanc Massif!

We run this course from early June until late September. We strongly recommend that you book as soon as possible, ideally by the preceding autumn, so that we can secure your places in the mountain huts. Please contact us for dates and guide availability.
