Le Petit Mont Blanc (3,424) definitely lives up to its name. Located in the Alps of France, this mountain is not too far from its larger namesake, Mont Blanc (4,810m). However, because of its smaller stature it is a much less strenuous mountain to climb. Thus making it a perfect peak for beginners wishing to climb in the crisp air of the Alps.

On this trip, we will spend the entire day ascending and descending this wonderful peak. The trip will take approximately 7 to 9 hours. It is an easy climb, and does not require much prior experience. Scenic and comfortable, climbing Le Petit Mont Blanc is a great way to spend a day in the mountains!

The trip will begin at the bottom of Val Veny, a magnificent looking valley of the Mont Blanc Massif. From there, we will make our way to the Checrouit lake (2,165m). At this stunning body of water, you will have great views of Mont Blanc, the Dent du Geant (4,013m) and the Brenva Glacier. After the lake we will climb to the bivouac Rainetto (3,046m). Finally, from the bivouac we will make our final push to the summit, where those same amazing views from the lake will be magnified by the altitude.

It’s not often that in the Alps you have a chance to climb a beautiful peak in just one day. It is even more rare to find such a peak that can be climbed with enough ease that even beginners can do it. However, on this trip, you will have that chance, at Le Petit Mont Blanc. Send me a message if that sounds like something you want to enjoy.

I can also offer another easy climb in the Alps, a 2 day ascent of the Testa del Rutor mountain in Northwestern Italy.
