Description

Mont Blanc (4,810m) is a truly majestic mountain. World famous, it is one of those peaks climbers from around the world dream of scaling. However, it is definitely not for beginners. So what is a person with not enough climbing experience to do if they still want to feel the glory of climbing Mont Blanc? The answer is simple: join me on this wonderful 3 day adventure, where you will get to climb the beautiful Domes de Miage on the Mont Blanc massif’s southern slope.

The only experience you require on this climb is to have used crampons before. Other than that, it is ideal for people who are anxious to try high altitude climbing. However, it is important that participants are in good physical condition, as we will be climbing from 6 to 9 hours each day. There will also be elevations as high as 1,400 meters.

During the ascent of the Domes de Miage, I will also be constantly offering tips and advice on proper climbing techniques.

The Domes de Miage are situated in a wild part of the Mont Blanc massif. It is quite remote, but very beautiful and still remains very close to the Chamonix valley. And as a result of its location, you will get to enjoy some amazing views of the Alps.

Do you want to start your high altitude climbing career on one of the world’s most renowned massifs? Then send me a request and let me guide you to the top of the Domes de Miage. I would be happy to show you the wild side of Mont Blanc!

I can also take you to the summit of the Gran Paradiso peak in the Italian Alps on this 3 day expedition.

Accommodation

2 nights in a mountain refuge.

More info

« IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SUMMER 2020: Following the request of the Prefecture of Haute-Savoie, the reservation of shelters located on the normal route of Mont-Blanc is possible only by filling in the complete identity of the participants (surname, first name, date of birth and nationality). These details will not be editable. All Mont-Blanc ascent bookings are subject to huts availability. During the last two weeks of March, mountain professionals will be able to make groups' bookings for these shelters: Le Goûter and Tête Rousse. As a result, spaces in Le Gouter and Tête Rousse shelters cannot be insured at registration.The places are very limited in these shelters, so we advise you to register before mid March! Bookings for huts begin in mid-March for professionals. We will keep you informed throughout the booking process, from March 31, 2020. Please note: this itinerary is an example of a mountaineering course in the Mont Blanc mountain range and should only be used as a guide. The guide may adjust certain itineraries according to weather conditions and participants' abilities. We kindly ask you to respect such decision. We may also change accomodation, maintaining identical standards, according to logistics and availabilities, except at Tête Rousse hut: if no spots are avaible in the hut, we might use the camp ground next to the hut. You will need to bring a good sleeping bag with the rest of the equipment detailed in the technical trip page details. Of course, we will keep you inform. In case of bad weather conditions making the ascent impossible, we will reimburse you according to the number of days not used but will offer you an alternative course in another montain range allowing you to make the most of your time off (most prices are published on our website). There'll be no screw up: you won't pay the Gran Paradiso the same price as the Mont Blanc. In case practices defined by the local guide authorities change (ex: the reasonable number of participants per guide, for safety reasons) we respect such recommendations and rules. We may therefore adjust our rates. »
