Description

Mont Blanc (4807m) is the highest peak in Europe and a big dream for  ambitious mountaineers. I invite you to join me on this 6-day guided ascent and reach the summit of this majestic mountain, with a previous ascent to Gran Paradiso (4061m).

This programme is designed for those who do not have the opportunity to prepare themselves for the ascent or for those who want to try the climb without necessarily having great experience behind.

Step by step, I will guide you on this challenging adventure, from the basics of mountaineering to the great glaciers of the Alps, until we reach the spectacular Mont Blanc summit.

The ascent of Mont Blanc will be preceded by the ascent of Gran Paradiso, another important peak in the Alps. At its 4061m, Gran Paradiso is a great test for those who want to push themselves higher.

The first 4 days of this programme will be devoted to acclimatization, and we will tackle the most important issues for a correct approach to the ascent of Mont Blanc. The last two days will be dedicated to the actual ascent of Mont Blanc. 

We will try to provide you with the information and skills you need for correct altitude behavior and the basic parameters to understand your real potential in the mountains. The Mont Blanc ascent should never be underestimated and you need to be objective in assessing your skills.

Progression on ice, rope maneuvers, crevass recovery, altitude behavior and resource management will be some of the topics and skills we will practice during these days. Please note you need a good physical condition to join this ascent. We will climb with crampons and ice axes on slopes at 45°.

If you want to reach the summit of the mythical Mont Blanc, just send me a request. Book your trip and let’s start planning this unique adventure.

If you want to train yourself with previous ascents before Mont-Blanc, you can check my Matterhorn or Gran Paradiso guided ascent tours.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been working as a mountain guide for more than ten years, and I still love my job very much! The great mountains of the Alps are my favorite playground: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso are my favorite destinations.

Great summer ascents and magnificent ski mountaineering tours in winter and spring.
