Description

There are many mountains in Europe that could claim the title as most famous, but few people can argue that Mont Blanc (4,810m) has earned that title. Also known as the giant of the Alps, this gorgeous mountain stands tall and proud over the Chamonix valley.

Besides the obvious beauty of Mont Blanc, what makes it so special is that you don’t have to be a climbing expert to reach its summit. Instead, as long as you are physically fit and have reasonable mountaineering experience, you can reach its summit.

———————————————————–

On this 2 day climb, we will scale the mountain via the Gouter route. This classic route is considered the fastest way to the top.

On the first day, we will meet at 7 am at the Les Houches cable car. After that, we will take a small train to the Nid d’Aigle (2,372m). Following that pleasant ride, we will spend approximately 5-6 hours making our way up to the Gouter refuge (3,815m), where we will spend the night.

On the second day, we will wake up very early, and head out at 2 am. Guided by the lights on our helmets, for the next 4-5 hours we will make our way along the Monte du Dome du Gouter. We will then take a passage in front of the Abri Vallot before making the final climb to the summit. We should reach the summit just in time for the sunrise. After you have enjoyed a truly remarkable view, we will then make our descent.

Mont Blanc is the kind of mountain climbers dream about when they sleep. If you want to make that dream come true, in only 2 days, send me a message, and let’s make it happen.

This 2-day ascent is only suitable for experienced mountaineers with previous acclimatisation. People with less experience, should check out my 5-day program: Mont Blanc ascent in 5 days via Gouter Route.
