Description

Breathing in the early morning alpine air we begin our ascent to the majestic Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, and the highest in western Europe.

With our base at the Cosmiques mountain hut (3,613 meters), which is the springboard for numerous classic mountaineering routes, we are in an ideal location to conquer the summit.

We will cross Col du Midi Plateau and start our ascent by skirting the north face of Mont Blanc du Tacul. Then we continue upwards towards the north face of Mont Maudit.

Below the Col du Mont Maudit we will approach the steepest section of the climb, which is usually icy.

Before reaching the summit, we will traverse southwards to Col de la Brenva and continue to it peak, before returning by the same route.

If time is on our side, we can grab the cable car from Aiguille du Midi to Chamonix. However, if the conditions are unfavourable, or if we are moving at a slow speed, we may have to spend another night at the Cosmiques hut, before grabbing the first cable car in the morning.

The day before our ascent we will do a gear check before taking the cable car to the last station. After going through a glacier and reaching the Cosmiques hut we’ll enjoy dinner and do some activities.

Please note that the Trois Monts route is more difficult than the standard Gouter route to the Mont Blanc summit. Prior acclimatization and mountaineering experience are required as well as having an excellent fitness level.

Reserve your place now to conquer the heights of the Alps and climb the summit of the world-famous mountain via the Trois Monts route.

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.
