Join Sebastien, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, in a great 4-day climbing to reach one of the most emblematic summits of Pennine Alps: Dent Blanche.

Not specified


4 Days

Jul, Aug


Come and join me on this great 4-day mountaineering tour which will enable you to ascent one of the most emblematic summits of the Alps “La Dent Blanche”.

Climbing Dent Blanche is really unforgettable experience for those who love this amazing activity. This summit is a must for any mountaineer. It offers a magnificent ascent within one of the most beautiful panorama of the Alps.

Dent Blanche lies in the Valais canton in Switzerland and it’s one of the highest peaks of the Alps, with 4357 meters high.

You will find below an example of this Climbing program to Dent Blanche. However, it can be modified according to weather conditions, and of course with your technical level, timing and wishes:

DAY 1: Climb to Tsa refuge

Meeting at Chamonix at 9am or directly in Arolla at 3pm. From there, then we reach to Tsa refuge where we’ll have dinner and spend the night. Elevation + 1000m.

– DAY 2: Dent du Tsalion and Aiguille de la Tsa.

Breakfast and departure to the ascent of Dent du Tsalion western ridge. Then, climb the Aiguille de la Tsa. Dinner and night at the Berthol refuge.

DAY 3: Tete Blanche and Heres Pass

Breakfast and departure to our next refuge: Dent Blanche. Traverse through the Tete Blanche and Heres Pass until reaching the refuge. Dinner and night there.

DAY 4: Grand Gendarme and Dent Blanche ascents.

Breakfast and ascent to Grand Gendarme through easy rocks. Then, we continue until reaching our main objective: Dent Blanche summit.

As a final point to considered, this climbing has a high technical difficulty, so it’s recommended to have some prior experience in mountaineering in high altitudes. Additionally, having a good physical condition is always a requirement.

Due to its difficulty, I proposed a personalized program where can only participate a maximum of 2 participants. So that, you can take full advantage of the training.

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.

Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.
