Highlights

 
  • Spend 2 days surrounded by dazzling 4,000-meter peaks.

  • Sleep in La Dent Blanche mountain hut.

  • Take part in an exciting climbing adventure in the Pennine Alps.

 

I offer this awesome guided ascent through the normal route starting from La Dent Blanche mountain hut. The climb is very interesting and diversified. I particularly enjoy it because…

  • We are surrounded by breathtaking mountains of 4000 meters high during 2 days;
  • There is some aesthetic rock climbing of high altitude during the climb;
  • We are roped as soon as we leave the hut;
  • La Dent Blanche mountain hut which lies at 3507m is very picturesque.

La Dent Blanche (4357m) is a perfect pyramid of gneiss which offers 4 beautiful ridges, at the 4 points of the compass. It is a full part of the imperial crown and it is the symbol of the Val d’Hérens.

This is an AD (assez difficile / pretty difficult) ascent. It requires good acclimatization and a good fitness level. You must have experience in walking with crampons and have done some climbing before. If it’s the first time you come with me or another guide of our team, we should go on a guided climb before so that I can test you and see if you have the level of climbing La Dent Blanche.

I will take one person with me on the rope. If you come with other climbers, I will ask other IFMGA mountain guides from our team to join us.

The best period to climb La Dente Blanche is from early July till mid of September. You’ll find an itinerary below this description.

If you are interested in climbing La Dent Blanche, send me a request! It will be my great pleasure to guide you up there and share with you my passion for the mountains and this awesome valley of Val d’Hérens.

In case you’d like to tackle other challenging peaks around, you can also check out this 2-day ascent to Grand Combin.

About the Guide

 
 

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!

What People are Saying about Yann Decaillet

 

Yann was a fantastic guide for the last 3 days in Verbier. He was flexible and really listened to what we wanted, which was fun and adventure but not too hard core. Our teenage children enjoyed the experience very much. We covered most of the resort and enjoyed some off-piste touring as well and we felt safe and informed the entire time.

Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!
