Highlights

 
     

    I designed this 2-day climbing course in Tête Blanche to make you discover mountaineering. Although you don’t need previous experience, you do need to be in good physical condition.

    Located in the Pennine Alps, at the border between Switzerland  and Italy, this mountain is perfect for a first adventure. Conveniently, we meet in Chamonix.

    It will be a great weekend to learn the basic mountaineering techniques while ascending a beautiful summit: Tête Blanche (3429 m). From here, the views are incredible!

    If you are alone don’t hesitate to contact me since I can put together groups.

    Does this weekend course sound tempting? Then please contact me and let’s make a plan! And if you want a longer course, I also give a 5-day course for beginners in Chamonix.
