Description

The Grand Capucin mountain (3,838m) is an intimidating, yet beautiful peak in the Mont Blanc massif.

Of all the granite peaks to the east and south of the Mont Blanc du Tacul (4,248m), the Grand Capucin is the biggest. Jutting up from the ground like a jagged tooth, this mountain looms large in the midst of several large peaks.

This ascent is difficult. Previous climbing experience is necessary for this ascent. You should also be in excellent shape. Definitely not for beginners, scaling the Grand Capucin can be gruelling. That’s why on this trip, we have spaced out the ascent into 2 days. However, once you reach the top, the glorious feeling you will have is second to none.

Looming over the impressive and vast Geant glacier, the view you will have of this enormous slab of ancient ice and rock is breathtaking. Also, from the summit of the Grand Capucin, you will get to behold a great deal of the magnificent Mont Blanc massif as well.

The 2 day trip will start at the Skyway cable car, which we will take to Punta Helbronner (3,400m). From there we will make our way up to the Torino hut, where we will stay the night. On the second day, we will make our way to the base of the Grand Capucin before taking the Swiss route for our 300 metre, Max 6B ascent to the summit. Once there, you will get to catch your breath, only to have it taken away again by the incredible views you will get to enjoy.

The Grand Capucin is an amazing peak in the Mont Blanc massif. And it would be my pleasure to guide you for 2 days until we reach its summit. Just send me a request, and let’s start climbing!

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.

I had a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele from PeaksHunter. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience with PeaksHunter.
