Enrico, an IFMGA mountain guide expert in the most technical climbing routes brings you to the top of Les Grandes Jorasses, one of the most famous peak of the Alps.
Take a mountaineering challenge in the Alps.
Climb a classical and mythical mountain range.
Acclimatize and prepare for the challenge with a guide.
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 climbs. 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 Grandes Jorasses North Face 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 through stunning mixed routes such as ‘The Colton Macintyre’, ‘Polish Route’, ‘Croz Spur’, ‘Reve effemere d’alpiniste’, etc.
On the contrary, if you are looking to climb them during the Summer, we can plan the ascent through its regular route on the south face known as the ‘Wymper Route’, or the Walker spur via ‘the Cassin route’ on the north face which is mostly rocky rather than mixed.
Besides all those great features, let me tell you why I like this ascent very much:
For safety reasons, if you are interested to come with me, we will need to
meet each other beforehand and climb together. This will allow me to assess
your mountaineering experience, and you to trust me on the mountains.
Keep in mind that the North Faces of the Alps 4-day training program is
mandatory for climbing together the big faces of the Alps and it’s not included in the price. We might climb routes such as Aiguille Verte, Supercouloir du Tacul, Petites Jorasses W face, or Grand Capoucin, depending which route you aim for. On this, you will be challenged on everything you need to know to climb the Grandes Jorasses North face safely and successfully!
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.

During day 2, we will climb the north face of les Grandes Jorasses and sleep in a bivouac on the way down to Courmayeur.
We’ll go down to Courmayeur. There, a transfer will take us back to Chamonix.
My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
I had great moments in the mountains with Enrico (we did together Les Droites via Ginat in 2013, Grandes Jorasses north face Reve Ephemere d\'Alpiniste in 2014, Mont Blanc du Tacul pilier Gervasutti in 2018, Aiguille Noire de Peuterey via Ratti-Vitali in 2016, Dent d\'Herens cresta Albertini in 2018, and many more). He\'s a great Guide and a great friend, everything looks easier and possible with him. He will help you to reach your goal learning a lot about mountaineering.
