Les Drus climbing traverse, in Chamonix could be the main symbol of mountaineering in the french Alps. It is what we know as “the holy grail”!

Aiguille du Dru or Les Drus, as we know it in the mountaineering circle, is located on the Mont Blanc massif, east of Les Praz town, in Chamonix valley. It has 2 peaks: Grande Aiguille du Dru (3754 m) and Petite Aiguille du Dru (3733 m). 

Les Drus climbing traverse is a great project which can take 2 or 3 days. We’ll start by taking the train to Montenvers, where we’ll cross the ice sea and spend the night at the Charpoua mountain hut. The next day we will start our traverse climbing to the Petit Dru with final destination in Grand Dru.

I only do this ascent with clients which I’m able to prepare before the traverse, technically and physically. That’s why I only take small groups of 2 people maximum. This is a committed and hard trip and it needs to be taken seriously.

So please contact me if you are interested in this beautiful Les Drus climbing traverse, in Chamonix. And if you specify all your needs we’ll embark faster on this amazing mountaineering project!

And if you’re also interested in some skiing programs, please take a look of my Ski in Belledonne, Chartreuse and Vercors or my Ski touring in the Champsaur valley.
