    This 2-day Mount Rutor ascent in Aosta Valley is a great option for beginners who want to start learning about high altitude mountaineering.

    Mount Rutor (3486 m) is also known as Testa del Rutor in Italy. It’s a beautiful mountain in the Valgrisenche Comune, which is part of the Aosta Valley. It’s the highest summit of the Rutor-Léchaud Group, that lies in between Mont Blanc Massif and Vanoise Massif. So this feature makes it the perfect place to admire the amazing views of both massifs.

    Plus, it has the huge Del Rutor glacier lying on its slopes, which makes the ascent an exciting adventure on ice.

    I’ll guide you through an easy route which is perfect for beginners. It’s also a great adventure to show your kids the first steps of climbing, since it’s available for children age 10.

    On the way up we’ll spend the night at the Rifugio Degli Angeli. This cozy mountain hut is 100% self-sufficient and gives all of its earning to charity, so it’s a great way to collaborate!

    So please send me a request to enjoy this 2-day Mount Rutor ascent in Aosta Valley. I’ll show you how to climb this beautiful mountain safely!

    What People are Saying about Andrea Benato

    Andrea was personable and did a good job of getting my daughter to the summit. As far as feedback, he said we didn\'t need helmets. Given the possibility for slips, rocks from above, etc., I think he should always recommend clients use a helmet even when the risk is low. Also felt could have been more accommodating of older climbers (like me at 61) and adjusted the pace accordingly.

    Easy technically, ok physically. A nice outing in general.

    We had a great time with Andrea! It’s quite cool to go in the mountains with someone your age. Andrea is one of the youngest Italian guides but already has a lot of experience and you can tell it once up there. We felt very safe all the way, he took us to some really nice lines and we even enjoyed some powder. He was always adapting to the rhythm of the team. The views around Val d’Aoste are amazing and the great food and service in the huts made the trip very special. Andrea knows everyone so we even enjoyed special treatment… (that tiramisu was amazing…)We will come back! There is a lot more to discover around there.
