Description

Join me for a superb 1-day rock climbing experience in the Mont Blanc massif. This area is well known all over the world for its fantastic crack climbing routes, dihedrals and technical plaques in an amazing high altitude scenery.

From the charming city of Courmayeur, in the Aosta Valley, we can easily reach the Mont Blanc massif. There are plenty of exciting options for a great day climb. The climbing grades start from  4+ to 7a and 7b.

You can see below a list of modern and also more classic climbing routes we find in the Mont Blanc massif. They are listed in decreasing order of difficulty level.:

  • Aig. du Midi-Via Contamine ED-(7a – 5+ obbl.)
  • Pic Adolphe Rey (3536 m)-Via Bettembourg-thivierge TD+ (6b – 5+ obbl.)
  • Pointe Lachenal (3613 m)-Via Contamine TD+ (6a+ – 5 obbl.)
  • Aig. du Midi-Via Rébuffat TD (6a – 5+ obbl.)
  • Pilier Rouge dell’Aiguille de Blaitiére (3050 m)–Via Nabot Léon TD (5+ – 5+ obbl.)
  • Dent du Géant-Dente del Gigante (4013 m)-Via Geant Branché TD – (5+ – 5+ obbl.)
  • Aiguille du Peigne (3192 m)-Arête des Papillons D (5 – 4+obbl.)
  • Pyramide du Tacul (3468 m)–Via Ottoz D-(4+ – 4 obbl.)

So, you can choose to climb the peak that best adjust to your level and goals. Every climb will take us 1 day.

Please note these climbs are aimed at experienced climbers in very good shape. They are quite technically and also physically demanding, because of the altitude.

So, if you want to join me and enjoy a great climb in the mythical Mont Blanc massif, just send me a request! We can start planning this great climbing trip right away.
