You have never walked on a glacier. You like climbing but you don’t have the necessary skills to go on a mountaineering trip. You like to do easy course but you don’t know how to rope to do a glacier traverse or climbing on a ridge.

Get trained and learn the basics of mountaineering in a structured environment in together with a certified mountain guide. 

Walking with crampons, do a belay on rock or ice, analyze the terrain, learn the rescue technics, rope and climb on a rocky ridge… these are the things I will teach you during several days on the Trient Glacier.

Between the Orny mountain hut and the Trient refuge, we can find all the types of mountaineering terrains allowing us to do all the necessary exercises for you to get the basics and fully enjoy your experience in the mountains.

The objective is to climb a summit every day while learning new stuff and sharing new technics.

I like guiding and giving trainings on the Trient glacier and surroundings because:

  • of the quality of the rock: the same granite as in Chamonix;
  • the Orny hut is ideal for climbing courses on rock, the Trient hut (one hour from Orny) is ideal for the snow and ice courses;
  • of the variety of the program: the beginning of the trip happens on rock, the end in the snow;
    • it’s accessible for beginners as well as for the more experienced mountaineers;
  • the owners of both refuges who I know well are very welcoming and kind.

I can take up to 6 persons with me on the rope. If you are:

  • alone or with someone else: training and climbing of peaks which include technical passages;
  • 3 to 6 persons then the trip will be focused on training and easy summits.

If you are looking to learn and improve your mountaineering skills, please get in touch with me and let’s discuss together about a program which meets your expectations. It will be my pleasure to guide your on the Trient Glacier and give you the necessary trainings for you to slowly be autonomous in an alpine environment.
