Description

The Innominata Ridge is a really exciting mountaineering tour. Through this route we’ll conquer the summit of Mont Blanc by its immense south face!

Let me invite you to a guided expedition through the Innominata Ridge. It is one of the most challenging southern routes to get to Mont Blanc. During these 2 unforgettable days, you will live a exhausting but rewarding mountain experience.

Across the Innominata Ridge we’ll face several strenuous rocky pitches as well as some mixed terrain (rocks and ice) reaching the Mont Blanc summit. Moreover, the entire ascent involves glaciers, snow ridges and big ice slopes. Like all the southern routes of Mt Blanc, the Innominata Ridge has an elevation change of 3300 meters that must be gained on foot.

Then, I’d like to share with you a sample itinerary of this program. Of course, it will depend on the snow and weather conditions of each day. Besides that, we must consider the dates of opening and closing of the lift facilities, which are established seasonally.

SAMPLE ITINERARY

Day 1

We will meet at the SkyWay cable car station. We’ll check the equipment and have a briefing. After that we’ll go to La Visaille, in the Veny Valley by transfer. Once we are there we’ll start walking towards the Monzino Hut at 2,561 meters above sea level. We will eat something there and then move to the Brouillard Glacier, where we must avoid the crevasses maze to get to the Col du Freney. After some sections of rocks we’ll finally reach the Eccles Bivouac (3,852 m) where we’ll spend the night.

Day 2

We’ll set off the Eccles Bivouac and climb the Col Eccles again. After that, we will walk down to the glacier on the Brouillard face. Here we must face some narrow and snowy ridges and climb up rocky fissures and ravines to reach the red towers. Then we’ll head left over rock and snow terrain in order to access the Brouillard Ridge. Now our route takes us directly to the summit of Mont Blanc, offering breathtaking landscapes along the way. Depending on weather, we can return by the Goûter Route or the Cosmiques Face.

Finally, let me tell you that I can take only one person with me. If you are planning to do this ascent with a friend I can call a colleague to come with us. The perfect months to enjoy this trip is from June to September.

So, don’t waste your time and contact me. I can offer you the most incredible expedition up to the summit of Mt. Blanc via the great Innominata Ridge!

Hello Basically I am satisfied with the whole organization, because in the end everything worked as expected, whereby the guide had a big part in the success! Unfortunately, the information regarding equipment was unclear in advance and sometimes varied, which didn't make it any easier for a beginner like me. In general, the flow of information was rather slow, but towards the end it was sufficient and quick. In general, I would recommend that you revise the list of necessary equipment! Above all, it should be clear what the guest has to bring (with a distinction between "must" and "recommended"), what is provided by the organizer and what could be rented if necessary. Of course, this is not easy to accomplish, as the necessary equipment also depends on the conditions. Best wishes and continued success with the organization of ski trips! Martin

Great service. Above and beyond expectations. Abigail went the extra mile to make my trip happen, after hours and at very short notice. It would not have been possible without her. Highly recommended.

Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.

We just remember now the breathing, the view and the joy we had in Gran Paradiso accompanied by our guides Silvia and Elis. This kind of memory makes us smile and look for the next adventure. Silvia and Elis were attentive, kind and professionally fully prepared to help us reach a great experience of discovery and safety. For sure the moment would not be the same without our guides. We feel grateful and lucky to have their support and company. Elis, Silvia, thanks for taking us beyond.
