Description

With 4810 meters, Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps and one of the most coveted peaks by local and foreign mountaineers. It’s my pleasure to invite you to join me on this 5-day program, which includes some acclimatization activities before going for the final prize: the Mont Blanc summit.

Although you won’t need to be an expert, a very good fitness level and some mountaineering experience, such as walking in crampons and using an ice axe, are a must.

As for the itinerary, we will start with the acclimatization process that consists of three days of different traverses and climbs to get physically and mentally ready for the ascent of Mont Blanc.

Among the warm-up options, I can offer some activities in Aiguilles Crochues (2840m) and Petite Aiguille Verte (3512m). Another option is to spend a night at the Cosmiques refuge (3613m) and visit Pointes Lachenal, Aiguilles d’Entrèves or go through Vallée Blanche and Arête de Cosmiques.

The last 2 days of the expedition will be focused on the ascent via Aiguille du Goûter or commonly known as the ‘Gouter Route’. The starting point will be Nid d’Aigle (2372m). We will get there by the Bellevue cable car and the Mont Blanc train.

Then, we will continue to the Tête Rousse refuge (3167m), from where a more demanding climb begins. After going through the l’Aiguille du Goûter we will reach the Gouter Hut where we’ll spend the night.

On day 5 we will start early in the morning passing by the Dôme de Goûter (4275m), the Vallot Hut (4362m) and L’arête de Bosses to finally reach Mont Blanc’s top roof. We will get there with the first rays of sun so we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the view until it’s time to descend.

Send your request now and book this trip. I’ll be happy to safely guide you in Mont Blanc!

If you want to do the acclimatization on your own, you can join me on this 2-day ascent and directly climb Mont Blanc, also via the Gouter Route.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.
