Description

Mont Blanc has several routes that lead to its summit. The most popular ones are: (1) the Royal Route by the Gouter hut or Tête Rousse (2) the 3 Mont Blanc routes by the Cosmiques Refuge and (3) the Historical path by Les Grands Mulets and Le Grand Plateau.

I always recommend to spend some days in the mountains before the climb in order to acclimatize our bodies. Then the ascent of Mont Blanc will take 2 o 3 days. That is why I have planned this 6-day program since it allows you to put the most chance of success on your side. It also gives more time for the right “window” weather.

Remember that a very good fitness level and some mountaineering experience are very important. 

We can also make the ascent in 3, 4 or 5 days for well-trained people, with a single itinerary for acclimatization and / or ice climbing. It’s a bit up to you depending on your desires, budget and mountain experience.

This ascent in the Alps can be done from early June till late September. I recommend June and September as there are fewer people. Also keep in mind that we can ascend Mont Blanc on skis.

So if you find this guided expedition interesting please contact me now and book your places.
