6-day training to climb Freney Pillar in Mont Blanc

6-day training to climb Freney Pillar in Mont Blanc | undefined

Conquering Freney Pillar is the dream of every expert climber seeking extreme challenges. Enrico (IMFGA-certified mountain guide) takes you on a 6-day training in the Mont Blanc massif, climbing three demanding routes as a preparation for the big climb.



6 Days

Jun - Sep




Among all the classic climbs in the Alps, the Central Freney Pillar is one of the most epic routes. Lying on the south face of Mont Blanc, this 800 m granite pillar is a magnet for advanced climbers looking for new challenges.

If this classic climb of the Alps is on your bucket list, you may want to join this 6-day training in the Mont Blanc massif. Before attempting the big goal, you’ll work on your rock climbing skills and gain some experience on classical mixed climbing.

Preparation climbs include the following three routes: Swiss route on Grand Capoucin, Gervasutti Pillar on Mont Blanc du Tacul and south face or west face of Petites Jorasses.

After this demanding 6-day training, you’ll be ready to tackle the final objective: climbing the Central Freney Pillar. You can do the training program and the final climb right afterwards, or do them separately.

Mountain Guide

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

What people are saying about Enrico



This was intended to be 10 days of skill building with the ultimate goal of climbing one of the 6 great north faces of the Alps. I'd climbed some mountains graded PD/AD- before and did a few mountaineering courses but didn't have much experience climbing ice, mixed or steep snow. This course blew my expectations out of the water. Enrico is the best guide I've ever had, from a combination of technical skill, patience, knowledge of all aspects and good nature. We climbed something every single day (!). I really progressed my ice climbing which was the main goal for me and many times during the course I came away feeling that I'd surprised myself by getting to the top. Enrico did a great job judging my level and found options every day to challenge but not overwhelm me. I came to trust his judgement and really appreciate the time we got to spend climbing some great routes. 10/10.



Great trip, highly customized and exceeding our expectations. Highly recommendable


Enrico is a fantastic person and a very good guide, very professional. We climbed Auguille d'Entreves.


Enrico is a mountaineering expert. I did many tours, summits and expeditions with him over the past 15 years Not only does he know the environment, but he is also technically very proficient, which is very comforting when the going gets tougher. He is a very safe guide, does not take chances as he wants both of us to get back home safely! And he likes to share and explain every decision he makes. Every outing with Enrico is a 5 star experience.


I went Ice Climbing in Cogne with Enrico. He is very competent, friendly and enthusiastic.
