We will meet in Chamonix and take the train to Montenvers. Then we will cross the Mer de Glace and ascend the ladders. We will reach the Couvercle hut in the afternoon, where we will spend the night.
We will leave the Couvercle hut in the early morning. We will start by crossing the glacier at the base of the route. Then, we will continue climbing over granite. From the top we will enjoy the stunning views. The descent to Couvercle hut is long, and from there we will continue to Montenvers to catch the train back to Chamonix.

I'm an IFMGA mountain guide from Romania and a member of the Austrian Mountain Guides Association (VOBS) and the East European Mountain Guides Association(EEMGA).
My passions are alpinism, rock and ice climbing and ski touring. Over the last decade and a half I have climbed and skied all corners of the World, spent numerous seasons guiding in the Himalayas, New Zealand, Alps and the Carpathians Mountains.
My primary concern as your guide is your safety. With that comes a great deal of fun, learning and engaging in experiences that will be memorable for a lifetime. I hope to have the opportunity to climb with you and help you achieve climbs, summits and experiences not yet imagined!
I have a very strict policy on guide-to-guest ratios for all types of terrain and these are clearly explained prior to engagement. For multi pitch climbs it is usually 1:1 and it never exceeds 1:2. For single pitch venues (especially on instructional outings) it never exceeds 1:4. Higher ratios are possible with the hiring of additional guides and only following prior arrangements. For treks and ski tours the ratios are more generous but depending on the terrain and/or the group’s experience.
I am comfortable in using for guiding and teaching purposes the following languages: English and Romanian.
