Description

While the destination of this 3 day trip is the amazing Mont Blanc du Tacul (4,248m), the journey to get there is equally spectacular. On our way to the summit, we will be traversing the Devil’s RidgeArete du Diable – one of the most beautiful climbing ridges in the entire Alps mountain range.

Along the Arete du Diable, you will get to enjoy 5 different summits, all of which are part of the 82, 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Alps. Those summits include L’Isolee (4,112m), Pointe Carmen (4,109m), Pointe Mediane (4,097m), Pointe Chabert (4,074m) and the Corne du Diable (4,064m). Hence giving you the chance to enjoy 6 summits in the Alps in just 3 days!

Our trip will begin in Courmayeur in the Aosta valley. From there, we will make our way up to the Turin hut (3,371m). On the following day, we will make our way to the aforementioned summits and then go to the Cosmique hut (3,613m). And on the final day, in the shade of the Geant glacier, we will make our way back to Courmayeur.

This is a challenging trip, so you should have prior climbing experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

The summit of Mont Blanc du Tacul is incredible, and the summits you will visit along the Arete du Diable are equally impressive. To enjoy them all, just send me a request.

You can also join me on this 3 day expedition to the summit of Mont Maudit by way of the Kuffner ridge.

Mountain Guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.

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.
