On this half-day adventure, I would like to guide you on an exciting and incredibly scenic ascent of the Arete des Cosmiqes. This picturesque ridge, which consists of unbelievable red granite towers, is located in the wildly popular and truly stunning Chamonix area of the French Alps.

Towering over the majestic Vallee Blanche, the Arete des Cosmiques offer a wonderful climb. It is also a varied climb as well, as it offers mixed terrain consisting of snow, ice and rock. And, when you reach the top of the ridge, you will get to enjoy tremendous views of not only Chamonix and the valley below, but several amazing peaks, including Mont Blanc.

After a scenic cable car ride, our climb will last between 3 and 5 hours, depending on weather conditions and other factors. So, even if you are spending just a single day in Chamonix, you can enjoy this unforgettable expedition.

In order to participate on this trip, it is important that you are in good physical condition. You should also have prior mountaineering experience as well.

Climbing in the Chamonix area is a dream for people who love amazing views. And on this trip, you will get to climb the Arete des Cosmiques, which provides some of the best views in the area. Moreover, you get to do that in just a half-day! To join me on this trip, just send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

Would you like to climb the legendary Mont Blanc Mountain? Then join me on this 2-day  ascent.


There are many comfortable accommodation options in Chamonix that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

Mountains have been part of my life for more than two decades now. It's been an intense relationship that consumed my everything. First, I practiced skiing and all forms of climbing: sport, traditional, big wall, aid, ice and mixed. I risked it all, giving my life away and winning it back on big and hard mountain faces.

Some years later, I studied paramedicine and joined the Heli-Rescue service. I witnessed my own triumph as an alpinist and tragedy as a rescuer, which completed my understanding of what the mountain is in relation to people. This was the beginning of the end of my alpinist alter ego.

In 2016 I climbed Cerro Torre and pushed a new line as a mountaineer in Patagonia. This was the climbing climax which gave way to my mountain guiding career: my third and most balanced perspective on the world of mountains and on the mountains of the world. Since then, I've guided climbing and skiing trips in the Alps, the Caucasus range, the Cordillera Blanca in Peru and in the mountains ranges of Eastern Europe, among others.

Appreciating happiness through the eyes of others is what finally brought harmony to me, and this is what I want to share with people.
