Description

If you are up for a big challenge, check this out: you can ascend with me to the summit of the highest and most famous mountain in the Alps, the Mont Blanc (4810m), via the Gouter route. Surrounded by almost 40 of the highest summits in France, it will amaze you with its white peaks and dramatic scenery.

Only suitable for adventurous climbers who want to reach for the top (literally and figuratively) and witness one of nature’s most breathtaking creations, this program requires previous mountaineering experience and a very good fitness level. Previous acclimatization is also key.

Everything starts with a trip on a cable car and a tramway. We get to the Nid d’Aigle, a train station located at 2372 m of altitude, and the starting point of a fascinating expedition.

That first day we will ascend to a hut located at almost 3200m (Tete Rousse) and, from there, we will climb Aiguille du Gouter to reach the Gouter Hut, where we will spend the night.  There, we should try to catch some zzz’s in order to be ready for our big challenge on the next day.

First thing in the morning we will start the ascent to the top. After more than a thousand meters of climbing and covered by the first rays of the sun, we will reach the summit and enjoy the view for a while before the descent.

By booking this trip now, you will be booking two days of adrenaline and excitement. Join me on a incredible adventure to the Mont Blanc summit. 

This 2-day ascent is only suitable for experienced mountaineers with previous acclimatisation. People with less experience, should check out my 5-day program: Acclimatization and Mont Blanc ascent (5-days).

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.

This trip was amazing! Highly recommend. Juan was a great guide. He showed us all the basics of ice climbing and glacier transit. I feel comfortable as a beginner ice climber to go out on my own safely. We practiced top rope ice climbing, placing ice screws and glacier travel. We learned crevasse rescue. We stayed in the Refugio Valle del Creston (Google it, the place is beautiful). On the last day we put all our skills to practice to attempt to summit a glaciated mountain. Totally recommend the trip!!

Juan is a knowledgable, personable and strong guide. Cerro Solo is a great short peak for those wishing to hone their skills. Campsite is beautiful
