1-Day Aiguille de la Gliere Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing in Chamonix


Come with Mathis, an aspirant guide, to Chamonix and the heart of Alpine climbing to enjoy a multi-pitch rock climbing program featuring the Aiguille de la Gliere of the infamous Aiguilles Rouges.



1 Day

Jul, Aug




  • Familiarize yourself with Chamonix and the beautiful Alpine landscape of France.
  • Learn and progress as a climber under the tutelage of an expert local guide.
  • Multi-pitch on classic routes in the Aiguilles Rouges near Mont Blanc.


Make your way up the Aiguilles Rouges and multi-pitch to the unequaled Aiguille de la Gliere! Take a one-day guided rock climbing program in the Alps surrounding Chamonix and take on some of the best routes in the region!

The Aiguille de la Gliere is infamous for its indomitable and exciting climbing routes, established as one of the most rewarding destinations for alpine climbing in the Chamonix Valley and France. In fact, one of its climbs, the South Ridge route of the Chapelle de la Gliere, was rated as high as four in a “Best Climbs” publication for Mont Blanc. And where there’s smoke, there’s fire – these routes more than live up to the legend.

Your program places you in the center of the vast climbing paradise, allowing you the chance to pick and choose the lines and pitches that best suit your abilities and strengths. With routes like Mani Puliti and Nez Rouge, both with at least five pitches, 5b Grades, and the awe-inspiring panoramas facing Mont Blanc from the Aiguilles Rouges, you will have your hands full of righteous rock all day.

This trip is a great way to gain exposure to the Alps and the many exciting rock climbing options around Chamonix. Not only does your program include the enthralling sights and experience necessary to improve as a climber and round out your skills, but it features special focus from a local guide. I will make sure you have a fun, safe, and unforgettable experience at every pitch. My goal is to increase your passion for the sport and keep you motivated to take on your next climbing objective.

There are plenty of options for every climber. You should have some previous experience, with the ability to lead belay and follow at a 5b Grade. You should also be in good shape to take on the physical demands of an Alpine climb. As long as you have a passion for rock climbing and an interest in the rare magic of the Alps, you will have a blast.

Start your rock climbing journey to the Aiguille de la Gliere NOW and book a multi-pitch trip into the majesty of the French Alps around Chamonix!

If you had another adventure in mind, we can also go to Brevent for some rock climbing and a night on a portaledge! Or we can switch gears and take a mountaineering program climbing Aiguille d’Entreves!

It was a great climbing day on almost a vertical rock about 70 meters high. Willy is the best guide I ever met in my life, and without him I wouldn't make it.

We had a great experience with Willy Viez in Wallonie. He shared a lot of useful knowledge with us about alpine rock climbing, especially about lead climbing. His pointers and real life examples turned out to be essential on the following day when we tried to climb an easy route on our own (no quick draws were left behind). Willy assisted us in a way that resulted in great personal accomplishments for the day and he surely helped us to feel more at ease around real rocks. We are very happy with this adventure that has a long lasting after effect.

Really enjoyed our day rock climbing in Les Calanques. Great routes and our guide was prepared, very flexible in terms of what we’d like to do and which levels he could do with us. The communication beforehand was a little unclear since I expected an email and didn’t quite get that I’d have to access the web application of explore share. Nothing major, just could be explained clearer in the email.

We had a great day with Ivan in Fontainebleau. He was so knowledgeable about the area and its history, and about warming up for effective climbing. We had a lot of fun and climbed some very cool boulders despite the very cold weather.

I booked a private shinrin yoku session with Explore-Share, but unfortunately their guide was injured and couldn't do it. Gauthier had been very helpful, quick to communicate and agreed to work with another guide he'd never met. All went well. My first forest bath guided by Magda was powerful and I appreciated the experience so much. She was calm, reassuring, and led all the invitations smoothly and sensitively. An eye-opening experience that will be fondly remembered.

The lift to the via ferrata des Evettes was closed so we did the via ferrata de curalla in Passy. Was a great day!

Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

Yesterday was amazing. Olivier is a world class climber and has a natural ability to quickly assess my level and coach me to exceed what I thought I could do. He was very focused on making sure I was safe. Climbing with Olivier yesterday has had a deep impact on my life as a climber. An excellent climbing guide!

We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!
