2 Days

Jun - Sep




Join me on this amazing ascent in the Northern area of the massif of Mont Blanc. The Dent du Geant ascent is an unforgettable mountaineering, rock climbing experience – guaranteed!

Dent du Geant – Dente del Gigante in Italian – or Giant's Tooth, is a classic 4000er, close to the border between France and Italy, over the Glacier du Geant.

Located on the ridge running from Mont Dolent to the peak of Mont Blanc, its neighboring peaks are Colle del Gigante (3,359 m) and Grandes Jorassess (4,206 m). This impressive rocky spire is considered an icon of the Mont Blanc group.

The Normal Route ascent refers to the ascent on the South West face. Although it is not technically difficult, this can be a strenuous ascent. On the summit (4,013 m), we will reach its famous two tops, only 30 meters apart: the Punta Sella (4,009 m) and the Punta Graham (4,014 m).

On our way to the top, you will be able to experience incredible views of some of the highest summits in this area, like Mont Blanc, Mont Maudit and Tacul.

This program is available for groups of 1 or 2 climbers. Climbers need to have a skill level from Intermediate to Advanced, some experience on crampons and mixed terrain (rock climbing: 5c / 6a).

Among the equipment gear you will need for this program are: crampons, mountain boots suitable for the glacier, ice axe, harness, helmet and belay plate for the abseil.

Mountain Guide

Hello! I was born in Patagonia, Argentina, and started practicing mountaineering from a very young age. Today I live in the mecca of alpinism, Chamonix, France. I work as a full time mountain guide here in the Alps, in Patagonia and in any place I get the chance to go to.

Whether it is rock climbing in the sun, or ice and mixed routes in the cold north faces in the Alps, I do everything with passion. Glacier travels, icefalls climbing, freeride, ski touring... Luckily the mountain gives us many choices.

I invite you to join me in any of my trips and activities!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
