Join Carlos, IFGMA/UIAGM mountain guide, on this exciting 3-day guided ascent to Mont Blanc (4810 m) in Chamonix and experience one of the most famous mountaineering challenges in France!
Surrounded by the 38 most important peaks of France and located at an altitude of 4810 meters, the famous Mont Blanc crowns the French Alps. Follow me on this 3-day guided ascent and prepare to conquer the roof of Europe!
Adventurers and mountaineers come every year from all around the world to reach the top of this mythical mountain. With its thundering glaciers and stunning alpine landscapes, Mont Blanc is bound to stun you on this 3-day guided ascent.
Our starting point will be at the charming mountain village of Chamonix. First, we’ll ascend to Aiguille Verte (3512 meters) which is an excellent mountain for training and acclimatizing- Then, on our second day, we’ll start up on one of Mont Blanc’s classic routes. Although it is considered the easiest way to reach the summit of this stunning peak, its high altitude and elevation gain will require good physical and technical preparation. You can find a detailed itinerary below!
Climbing to the top of Mont Blanc, the highest peak of the Alps, is a dream for most mountain lovers. So if you are ready to join me on this fantastic 3-day guided ascent, send your request. I guarantee this will be a unique experience!

Tête Rousse Refuge
I can recommend accommodation in Chamonix for before/after the ascent. Hotel Le Vert and Chamoniard Volant are two good, budget-friendly options.
During this acclimatization day, we’ll take on the Aiguille Verte (3512 meters) and refresh some basic mountaineering skills.
In the afternoon, we will return to Chamonix.
Early in the morning, we’ll review our equipment in Chamonix. Once we are all ready, we’ll take the cable car that goes up to Bellevue (1794 m) from Les Houches.
From there, we’ll take the Mont Blanc Train that will take us to the Nid d’Aigle (2380 m) where we’ll start trekking. From Nid d’Aigle we have between 2 and 3 hours of approach to the Tête Rousse Refuge located at 3165m.
Finally, we will spend the night at the Tête Rousse refugee.
We will save about 800 meters of positive height gain, which depending on the season can have snow from the same train to the shelter or be completely dry.
Slope: + 800m -0m / Time: 2-3h
After a rather short night, we will get up at 2 in the morning to have breakfast and get to work. A long day awaits.
We will leave the refuge and with all the necessary equipment (crampons, harness, helmet, etc.).Shortly after leaving the refuge, we will cross the famous bowling alley (safer to cross at dawn) and we will ascend the famous road equipped with cables to the shelter of Goûter, where we will stop and eat something.
Next up, we will go through glacial terrain and shortly we will pass near the Dôme de Goûter at 4304 meters. We will have a nice view of the Vallot refuge at 4362m and the summit of Mont Blanc with the edge of Bosses uniting them.
From then onwards, the ascent will become a little more technical and we’ll have to overcome the beautiful edge, sometimes quite narrow, passing through the two small peaks of Les Bosses (The Humps) at 4513 meters.
Then, a long ridge will take us to the long-awaited summit of Mont Blanc at 4810 meters. We will descend through the same route to the Tete Rousse refuge and Nid d’Aigle, then take the train back to the Chamonix Valley , where we will spend the night.
Slope: + 1650m -2500m / Time: 12-15h

Thanks to Carlos and explore- share staff:) My experience with booking through explore-share and climbing to Mount Blanc with Carlos were fantastic! He is very easy going and flexible.
The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn\'t mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn\'t see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don\'t have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o\'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.
Everything was as agreed.
Bit more trouble with booking, it blocked amount from credit card two times. Guide was professional and made climb very enjoyable
Carlos is a fantastic guide - he has over 20 years experience in the mountains and the right attitude: safety first, then enjoyment. His excellent local knowledge of the routes meant we could adapt to the weather and conditions. He also has the mix of being an excellent alpinist but also loving the scenery and wildlife. We had an incredible experience that we will never forget! This 3 day trip is a great option as you have a \'training day\' to help acclimatise, refresh skills and come together as a group before your ascent! explore-share is a great platform to connect adventurers with guides and experiences - the chat service allowed us to ask questions first and work out the best dates for us
Carlos is a great guy and knowledgable guide! Although we were unable to attempt to summit Mont Blanc due to weather, Carlos still ensured that we had a really fun and interesting trip! I would definitely recommend!

This was an incredible experience. Carlos did an amazing job. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the climb and was great at getting our shelter and transportation secured all while making sure I was safe and having fun the entire time we were climbing. I couldn’t be more confident to recommend. If you want the adventure of a lifetime, high in the French Alps then climb Mont Blanc with Carlos.
Carlos was amazing! Great person, beautiful trip. Get in good shape!
