Mont Blanc – Exclusive experience

Climb Mont Blanc with a private Chamonix Experience Mountain Guide on a 1:1 ratio over 4 days. This shorter itinerary is designed for climbers with intermediate mountaineering experience who wish to have a more personalised experience ascending the Mont.


Completely tailored, flexible & personalised guiding experience.


2 options to summit in case of bad weather.


We take care of the logistics, huts reservations, lifts and transport.


This 4 day programme was designed for those who prefer to summit the Mont Blanc in a shorter time frame with a private guide. You will be alone with your own guide and the ascent will be adapted to your speed and abilities. You will have the full attention of your guide allowing for faster progress during on the training day as well as a faster ascent to the summit of Mont Blanc.

This programme is divided into two parts: The first day is allocated for preparation, acclimatisation and training. You may visit one of the famous local glaciers – the Vallee Blanche, where you will climb one of the classic mixed routes, e.g. traverse of the Pointes Lachenal or les Marbrees. Or, you will climb a route such at the traverse des Crochues. This will be decided by your guide depending on your previous climbing experience, weather forecast and current conditions. We will work with you on your ice axe & crampon techniques, rope work and glacier travel safety skills.

The last three days are allocated for the Mont Blanc ascent. You will climb Mont Blanc via the normal route. We will stay in the Tete Rousse and the Gouter huts. We will summit the Mont Blanc on the 3rd or 4th day of the programme, depending on the weather and conditions, and return to Chamonix.

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.

One client or one climbing team of 2 per guide during all 4 days.
