Description

Head to the heart of the beautiful Mont Blanc massif to learn mountaineering techniques, including how to conquer glaciers, mixed terrain and high altitudes.

With our 2-day base at the Torino refuge, our main objective is to build confidence and teach participants the essentials, including glacier crossings, mixed routes and ridges, and steep gullies. All this is in order to make participants independent on the mountainside.

While keeping the guide ratio low, you can expect the care and attention needed in order to develop your mountaineering skills.

Reserve your place amid the high mountain of the Mont Blanc massif, and upgrade your mountaineering techniques, build confidence, and experience the wild beauty of the Italian alpine mountainside.

We had an incredible time climbing in Portovenere with the Prorock team! They were incredibly helpful in coaching and teaching us climbing techniques, while also allowing us to have so much fun climbing a ton of different routes. They were very familiar with the area and gave us recommendations on how to spend the rest of our day after our trip. Overall we had an incredible experience and hope to be back soon!
