  • Privately guided traverse of a fun objective in the Mont Blanc massif
  • Quick and efficient 1 day climb - perfect for acclimatization or training
  • Climb with an experienced guide who knows the route well


Explore the impressive ridge that marks the border between France and Italy during this 1 day privately guided traverse of Aiguilles Marbrées!

We will spend the a memorable day climbing in the classic alpine landscapes of the Mont Blanc massif as we complete a quick and efficient traverse of Aiguilles Marbrées. To make the most of our experience and explore two faces of the mountain, we will ascend the steep eastern ridge of the peak and descend via the southern ridge, which is long but mild. The route to the summit is rocky, and depending on conditions may be a mixed climb that requires the use of crampons. If there’s no snow, it will be an alpine rock climb.

We will begin in Chamonix, driving to the cable car at Punta Helbroner, located on the Italian side of the Alps. Once we arrive at the mountain, we traverse the Col du Glacier du Geant in order to reach the Aiguilles Marbrées. Once the ascent is complete, we will take the cable-car for our return to Courmayeur.

While this route is shorter than nearby climbs, we will still aim to complete the climb in a quick and efficient manner, making use of our previous mountaineering experience. While this is a great climb in its own right, it would also serve as an excellent acclimatization or training climb for another nearby objective.

Book now for a fun 1-day climb among the classic landscapes of the European Alps, as we complete a fantastic traverse of Aiguilles Marbrées!

About the guide

I'm an IFMGA mountain guide from Romania and a member of the Austrian Mountain Guides Association (VOBS) and the East European Mountain Guides Association(EEMGA).

My passions are alpinism, rock and ice climbing and ski touring. Over the last decade and a half I have climbed and skied all corners of the World, spent numerous seasons guiding in the Himalayas, New Zealand, Alps and the Carpathians Mountains.

My primary concern as your guide is your safety. With that comes a great deal of fun, learning and engaging in experiences that will be memorable for a lifetime. I hope to have the opportunity to climb with you and help you achieve climbs, summits and experiences not yet imagined!

I have a very strict policy on guide-to-guest ratios for all types of terrain and these are clearly explained prior to engagement. For multi pitch climbs it is usually 1:1 and it never exceeds 1:2. For single pitch venues (especially on instructional outings) it never exceeds 1:4. Higher ratios are possible with the hiring of additional guides and only following prior arrangements. For treks and ski tours the ratios are more generous but depending on the terrain and/or the group’s experience.

I am comfortable in using for guiding and teaching purposes the following languages: English and Romanian.
Contact me for availability, rates or to customize a program to help you achieve your climbing goals.
