Description

Climbing Mont Blanc (4810m), the highest mountain in the Alps, is a must for every mountaineer. I propose to you a 6-day programm, with some previous training and acclimatization before the ascent.

We will meet in the charming village of Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc, where we will have 3 days of training. This way, you will maximise your chances to reach the summit. The ascent to the top of Mont Blanc will take us 3 more days.

During the first day of the training you will learn how to walk on the ice with crampons and how to use an ice axe. On the second day, we will train in the Aiguilles Rouges (2965 m), a perfect setting for a moutain climbing training. Finally, on the third day, we will descend to the Pointe Lachenal (3613 m) from the Aiguille du Midi (3842 m).

These 3 days are the perfect way to get in shape, acclimatize well and learn the right techniques before heading to the summit.

On the fourth day, we will start our ascent, spending two nights at the Tête Rousse refuge (3167 m). Climbing Mont Blanc in 3 days is the best option for a great mountain experience. The summit of this majestic mountain provides a spectacular view!

So if you want to join me on this Mont Blanc ascent, just send me a request and we will start planning this great trip.
