Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
Climbing Mont Blanc is a formidable challenge that requires a high level of skill, fitness and experience. The ridges of Aiguille d’Entreves provide the perfect testing grounds to start gaining the necessary skills in order to conquer even harder climbs.
Join us in this adventure where you will learn proper climbing techniques for both ice and rock terrain and improve your techniques in glacier crossing under the guidance of an experienced IFMGA certified guide.
We will start with an easy and fun climbing ridge in Val Veny, a valley located in the Aosta Valley which offers one of the most beautiful views of the snow-capped peaks of Mont Blanc. Afterward, you will be able to spend the night in the picturesque town of Courmayeur, home to a number of restaurants, bars and historic buildings.
The next morning we'll make our way to the Skyway lifts to reach Pointe Helbronner. This will mark the start of our journey to join the first rocks of the Aiguille Marbrée, an immense mountain peak in the Mont Blanc Massif with an elevation of 3,523 meters. Known for its sharp ridges and rocky terrain, it will provide a challenging yet rewarding climb. As we prepare ourselves with the proper equipment we will start ascending through the Aiguille Marbrée which, according to the condition, will have mixed ice/rock terrain or, in dry season, rocky terrain only.
We will then rest for the night in Torino Refuge, a mountain hut situated at an impressive altitude of 3,375 meters with a stunning panoramic view of the surrounding peaks and glaciers; a great place to rest and acclimatize before embarking on our next climb.
After witnessing the stunning dawn of the Alps, we will begin with our first assessment to test both overall physical condition and climbing skills in order to leave the refuge and start crossing the glacier heading the Aiguile d’Entreves to reach the beginning of the climb. The terrain here will be varied as it includes steep snow, ice slopes, exposed ridges and rocky terrain. As you traverse it you will develop a vast range of mountaineering skills and techniques, gaining considerable climbing experience.
Conquer this challenging path with the instruction and expertise of your certified guide and obtain the experience, technique and skills required to master touger climbs!

We had a fantastic time on the Monte Rosa Tour and couldn’t recommend the team and trip highly enough. The tour was extremely well planned to ensure we had the best chance of achieving our goals whilst having a great time, thanks to a perfect mix of climbing and learning whilst giving our bodies a chance to adapt/ acclimatise and rest. Each day was varied and exciting and our guides were extremely knowledgeable, safe and great fun to spend a week with. The course was perfectly tailored to the teams skill level and allowed us all to have a brilliant time. Can’t thank Enrico, Marco and Francesco enough. Cheers guys
