Description

Mont Blanc is a mountaineering classic that many aspire to. At 4808m, this stunning mountain is the tallest in the Alps and a challenging and rewarding ascent. Consequently, it requires proper preparation. On this 5 day program we will show you to the Mont Blanc summit and have a 3 day prior acclimatization to ensure you get the most out of the experience!

We have several acclimatization options in the Mont Blanc area. These include day trips to Aiguille Crochue (2840m) and Petite Aiguille Verte (3512m), and an overnight stay at the Cosmiques hut which gives us access to other stunning options in the area. Then, after our three day acclimatization, we will head to the Mont Blanc summit. This excursion will take us two days of intensive trekking and we will spend the night at the Gouter hut.

Because this is a challenging climb it is important that you have previous mountaineering experience. Also, you will need to be physically fit. Additionally, it is vital that you take the issue of acclimatization seriously in order to ensure safety. I will of course be there to help and guide you on the way!

Would you like to try the famous Mont Blanc ascent? Then please book your place and join me on this 5-day program that includes acclimatization and revel in the stunning beauty of the Alps!

Curious about the Matterhorn? I also offer a 2-day guided ascent to this famous landmark in the Alps!

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.
