Description

Climbing the most technical peaks of the Alps is my speciality and also what I enjoy doing a lot. Climbing Les Grandes Jorasses through its different routes is one of my favorite climb.  Why not joining me if you are looking for awesome mountaineering challenges. 

Les Grandes Jorasses are a group of granite peaks located in the northern side of the Mont Blanc range, on the border between Italy and France. Although all its faces are amazing, its 1.200-meter north wall is the biggest challenge for climbers.

Furthermore, the North Face Grandes Jorasses offers a wide variety of rocky, snowy and mixed terrains.

It is also possible to reach the summit by different routes depending on the season. The North Face can be climbed in Autumn, Winter and Spring. The Colton Macintyre, Polish Route, Croz Spur, Reve effemere d’alpiniste, etc… can also be climbed at that period.

On the contrary, if you are looking to climb them during the Summer, I can plan the ascent through its normal route, known as the “Wymper Route”.

Besides all those great features, let me tell you why I like this ascent very much :

  • Climbing Les Grandes Jorasses is very technical and accessible only to the very experienced mountaineers. These kind of climbing adventures are my favourite;
  • Les Grandes Jorasses have been ascended by all the most famous climbers and have been in many mythical stories of alpinism in the Alps;
  • The climbing line is logical and very elegant within this huge face.

For such kind of ascents, I only guide clients that I know. That’s why if you are interested to come with me, we will do one or two technical ascents before. This will allow us to get to know each other and for me to assess your climbing level. For the preparation, we can climb the north face of les Droites, the supper couloir of Le Mont-Blanc du Tacul, etc.

Finally, at the bottom of this description you can find some extra information about the itinerary of the trip.

For any question or if you want to book this great challenge, please feel free to contact me. It will be an experience you won’t forget in your life. And as your guide, I will do my best to make it a success for both of us.
