Description

If you have some previous mountaineering experience, a great fitness level and enjoy demanding challenges, I invite you to conquer the summit of the famous Mont Blanc (4808m) in just 1 day!

Standing over the beautiful Chamonix Valley, the legendary Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps and a dream ascent for mountaineers from all over the world.

We will start our adventure at midnight, from the village of Les Houches (1050m), 6 kilometres from Chamonix. This intense rapid ascent I propose is a truly demanding climb. Mont Blanc is usually climbed on at least 2 days, but we will reach the summit and descend to the valley in just 1 day. It will be an unforgettable ascent via the Gouter Route.

So, in order to join this program, you need to have an excellent fitness level, as we will climb without the help of ski lifts and we won’t spend a night in the refuge, as most climbers do before attempting the summit. You also need to have previous high mountain experience, on a climb of at least 3 days.

The Gouter Route is considered the fastest way to the Mont Blanc summit, once you reach the Gouter Hut. It is also the classic and most popular route. Of course, we will have a break at the hut on our way up and when we descend.

From the hut to the summit the terrain is mostly glaciated, and requires the use of harness, crampons and ropes. We will enjoy a truly spectacular view from the top of Mont Blanc!

If you want to join me on this unique 1-day ascent, just send me a request. Book your trip and let’s start planning this challenging climb to the mythical Mont Blanc!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
