Chamonix is a French commune at the foot of Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps. One of the oldest mountaineering destinations in the Alps, it is nowadays one of the most popular as well.

On this 6-day tour (5 days of climbing) we will climb challenging and rewarding routes such as Triangle du Tacul, Aiguille de Toule and Cosmiques Arete. Furthermore, we will spend the nights in charming mountain huts surrounded by unique landscapes!

Please note that you need rock and ice climbing experience (basic experience on snow and ice). It is also necessary to have a good fitness level.

So, if you want to come to Chamonix for an unforgettable 6-day alpine ice climbing tour, just contact me. Get ready for some steep couloirs, majestic routes and breathtaking views!

About the Guide

 
 

I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.

In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.

We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!
