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

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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
