Highlights

  • Develop your mountaineering skills with an IFMGA-qualified team.
  • Surround yourself in the stunning Italian mountainside.
  • Master glaciers and mixed terrain.

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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Day of techniques

We will ascend to the Torino refuge, and dedicate the rest of the day to glaciers, tying techniques and self-rescue techniques, in the event of a crevasse fall. Then we will take a short climb on snow and mixed terrain.

Day 2: Climb the massif

Today we climb to a top of the massif, where we will experiment with the techniques of progression on snow and mixed terrain, together with all the tying methodologies learned in the previous day.
