Description

Certainly two of the most renown peaks in the Alps are Mont Blanc and Matterhorn. In this occasion, I propose you to ascend them both in a week. 

The first 3 days will be dedicated to Mont Blanc (4810m). It is the highest peak in the Alps and (not only in my opinion) one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. We will do the ascent either by the Gouter route (classic route) or by the 3 Monts traverse (Mont Tacul, Mont Maudit, Mont Blanc). The final decision will depend on the conditions of the terrain as well as the weather.

For this task you’ll need to have a very good fitness level and some previous acclimatization. Plus you’ll need to be comfortable with some mountaineering techniques, such as walking in crampons or using ice axe. 

Then we will have a well-deserved resting day, during which we will transfer to Zermatt or Cervinia, depending on which route we will use to climb the next peak.

And the ascent of Matterhorn (4487m) will take our last 3 days. Matterhorn, located at the border between Switzerland and Italy, is the symbol of Switzerland, a truly stunning mountain. Again, depending on the terrain conditions and the weather, there are two possible routes that we can take, both equally exciting. It will be either via the Lion ridge (Italian normal route) or via the Hornli ridge (Swiss normal route).

As this is a demanding climbing adventure, it is important to be in good physical shape and to have mountaineering experience. If you are not sure whether you have the required level, feel free to ask me.

Thinking of completing the ascent of Mont Blanc and Matterhorn next season? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request! It will be a true pleasure to guide you up there.
