Description

Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps and also a large massif with the biggest number of famous climbs in Europe. Do you want to discover some of its main attractions? 

Whether it´s rock climbing, mixed climbing or mountaineering, climbers have always been attracted to Mont Blanc, they have opened routes and have written history. In fact, some of these legendary routes are considered a ‘must-do’ for any passionate mountain climber.

On this 5-day programme, I propose to explore some of these classic alpine climbs:

  • Cosmiques Ridge,
  • Entreves Ridge,
  • Midi-Plan traverse,
  • Petit Aiguille Verte,
  • Tour Ronde,
  • Rock Climbing in Aiguille Rouges or Aiguilles du Chamonix or on Tacul E Face.

I recommend this trip because it allows you to see other parts of the Mont Blanc massif while having a fun climbing day. Furthermore, there’s a variety of routes and many possibilities to challenge yourself.

If you want to, I can also include some training courses for rock climbing, glacier travel, etc.

You’ll find a tentative itinerary below this description. However, I’ll adapt the activities and locations to your wishes and your experience.

Are you ready to discover ‘the other’ main attractions of Mont Blanc? Send a request for this trip and let’s find the perfect challenge for you!

If climbing Mont Blanc is also on your bucket list, you should check this 5-day programme that includes training, acclimatization and ascent.

About the guide

guide profile img

I’m an IFMGA mountain guide, a geographer and a passionate alpinist and climber.

I started going in the mountains as a child, at first very close to my home, in the Romanian Carpathians. In these mountains I discovered the passion for outdoor activities and climbing. It was not long until I started discovering other mountains and their challenges and I began building a "mountain climbing lifestyle".

I went in different expeditions around the world and I am always looking for interesting challenges in far away mountain ranges. As often as possible I spend my time in the Alps, training, climbing and enjoying life.

I became a national mountain guide in Romania in 2011. Since then, I love sharing my passion for the mountains and I enjoy taking clients to incredible places. I'm also a volunteer in educational activities to promote the values of authentic alpinism.

I believe in self development and always getting better at what I do, so in 2015 I joined the IFMGA mountain guide training program at EEMGA (East European Mountain Guides Association) and became a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide in 2018.

It will be my pleasure to guide you in any adventure in the mountains.
