Spend 5 days near Chamonix, based out of the Couvercle hut in the French Alps, climbing 4 hard to reach, challenging peaks, including Aiguille Verte, Les Droites and others with UIAGM certified guide Philipp.



5 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Make your way up to 4 hard to reach summits in the Alps, such as Les Droites.
  • Spend 4 nights in the base of the trip: the Couvercle hut.
  • Enjoy some spectacular views of the Alps.


For 4 days, I would like to guide you to the summits of 4 hard to reach peaks in the Alps. The 4 peaks we will be scaling on this trip include the Aiguille Verte (4,122m), the Aiguille du Jardin (4,035m), the Grande Rocheuse (4,102m) and Les Droites (4,000m). Each one of these peaks are part of the 82, 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Alps.

Our trip will begin in the famous and stunning town of Chamonix. From there, we will make our way to the Couvercle hut. The hut will be our base throughout the 5 day trip, and is where we will be sleeping every night.

Each one of the climbs on this trip will be arduous. However, the views you will get from each summit are nothing short of incredible. And the feeling you will get after overcoming each challenge is indescribable. Needless to say, in order to participate on this trip, you should be a very experienced climber, prepared for some advanced level climbing. And because we will be climbing for approximately 8 – 10 hours per day, and ascending between 850 and 1,550 meters, you should be in good physical condition.

There is something truly thrilling about climbing mountains most people don’t attempt to climb. And on this 5 day expedition, I have no doubt you will have an experience you will never forget. To join me, please send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

Would you like to climb to the summit of the highest mountain in the Alps? Then join me on this 4 day adventure that will take you to the summit of Mont Blanc along the Gouter route.

About the guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.
