A beautiful mountaineering experience for beginners in Tête Blanche, enjoying an ascent with breathtaking views, with Sébastien, IFMGA certified guide.
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
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.
We meet at Chamonix at 9AM, then transfer to the Tour cablecar (located at the bottom of the Chamonix valley). Cablecar ascent to the Balme pass (2180 m). Then we continue ascending by foot to the Albert 1 refuge (2700 m). We leave our belongings and in the afternoon we do some training at the Tour glacier.
Today we ascend the Tête Blanche (3429 m). The views over the Aiguille du Tour and Aiguilles Dorées are exceptional. We return by the same route and descend to the Chamonix valley by foot and cablecar.
In the Albert 1 refuge.
Group size: 4 to 6 people.
I will loan you a harness, ice axe and helmet.

Super semaine avec Sébastien et Guillaume. Très partant pour refaire un stage!!!
Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.
It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.
Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.
Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier
Sebastien was very professional in guiding us to the top of Mont Blanc! Great atmosphere within the group thanks to his great character. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to clim the Mont Blanc, no matter his level. Thanks again, Sebastien!
Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
