Highlights

 
  • Climb on the wild side of the Mont Blanc Massif.

  • Reach the top of the beautiful Domes de Miage.

  • Gaze out at the gorgeous Chamonix valley and marvel at the French Alps.

 

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.

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
