Come along this Grand Paradiso ascent, the highest mountain entirely within Italy. This constantly snowy peak is located to the south of the Mount Blanc Massif, inside the Paradiso National Park, in Val d’Aosta. A great option if you are looking to attempt a 4000 m summit in this region!

Gran Paradiso is also referred to as Grand Paradiso. It is a wonderful snow and glacier climb, with some rock sections near the peak. Our initial meeting point is usually Pont.

This particular route will take us through the legendary Vittorio Emmanuelle – Vittorio Emanuele – hut (2,735 m), and through the west ridge of Gran Paradiso.

As a part of this route, I will guide you across the Gran Paradiso Glacier. It includes rocky towers, moraines, hidden crevasses and a snowy ridge before reaching the summit (4,061 m, 13,323 ft). An amazing and rewarding challenge for any climber!

This ascent is quite accessible for a 4000 m mountain, suitable for both experienced and not-so-experienced climbers: from beginners to intermediates. Some mountaineers go on this tour as a way to gain acclimatization for higher summits, like Mont Blanc.

Groups on this program will be between 1 and 3 climbers.

Among other gear items you will need ice axe and crampons.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
