Highlights

 
  • Explore the spiked alpine summits of the Aiguilles Marbrées.

  • Experience spectacular alpine scenery of neighbouring snow-cloaked mountains.

  • Be reassured with a fully, internationally-certified guide.

 

Climb across the excellent piercing spires of Aiguilles Marbrées that congregate at the border of France and Italy.

With easy access and enjoyable climbing conditions, these scattered summits present ideal opportunities for great climbing and spectacular scenery.

We begin with a drive from the beautiful alpine commune of Chamonix to the Italian side of Mont Blanc. From here we grab the cable car to the mountain of Punta Helbronner.

Once situated here we’ll cross the Col du Geant, a gorgeous glacier on Mont Blanc, and then start climbing along the tight rocky peaks of Aiguilles Marbrées.

As we approach the Aiguilles Marbrées we will traverse the steeper east ridge, moving quickly and efficiently. The route is shorter than neighbouring mountains yet is still a mixed climb coated by white powder.

After taking the views in we’ll descend a different way, on the south ridge, which is longer yet mellower. Afterwards we’ll return to catch the cable car to Courmayeur.

The climb acts as an excellent training ground as well as an acclimatisation ascent for more demanding climbs in the future. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place in Chamonix for a 1-day traverse of the rocky spires of the Aiguilles Marbrées.

About the Guide

 
 

I'm an IFMGA guide from Romania and a member of the Eastern European Mountain Guide Association.

With two decades and a half spent doing mountain sports and nearly a decade guiding or teaching climbing my work and passion has taken me from the mountains and crags near home to the greater ranges.

Please feel free to get in touch for trips involving trekking, climbing, skiing or expeditions. I also run climbing courses (rock, ice, mixed and alpine), ski touring and winter safety workshops as well as self rescue in vertical terrain clinics.

Regular climbs from sport to multi-pitch and alpine terrain are charged on per-day rates plus expenses while expeditions are charged on a flat rate based on the size of the group and the destination.

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 purposes the following languages: English, Romanian, French and Italian and for teaching purposes English and Romanian.

What People are Saying about Cosmin Andron

 

We had a great time , unfortunately Cosmin broke his arm two weeks before the trip but the replacement guide Nicu Durnac was superb.

The plan was to leave early to ascent Mont Blanc via Trois Monts. As a beginner, Cosmin accessed my performance by timing my ascent to the shoulder of Tacul, else he has to change the plan. I met the timing and proceeded to Maudit. Unfortunately, he made a tough decision to head back as the condition at the foot of Maudit was not great. (We heard serac fell at mid day). Being professional, Cosmin changed the plan to ascent Tacul and we did Cosmique Arete. I would highly recommend this trip!
