Mountain RangeAlps
Duration2 days
Offer periodJul, Aug, Sep
Type of tripNot specified

Description

Grand Combin is the only summit of more than 4000 m between the Grandes Jorasses and the Dent-Blanche, which we can also climb. This is an iconic mountain of Bagnes Valley, which dominates all other peaks for miles around.

Grand Combin offers an exceptional flora and fauna, a wild atmosphere ideal for nature lovers and a genuine hospitality during the trip.

It’s less known than some four-thousanders in the Valais, and wrongly, mountaineers are less interested in it!

It’s a mistake, because the edge of Meitin offers a good and varied itinerary between snow, rock and ice. Discover this wild climb, away from the crowds!

The ascent takes about two days.

I invite you to contact me if this adventure sounds interesting to you. I’d be glad to lead you there!

About the guide

guide profile img

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!
