Mont Blanc 2-day guided ascent via Aiguille du Gouter

Mont Blanc 2-day guided ascent via Aiguille du Gouter | undefined

Dare to climb Mont Blanc, the highest summit in the Alps, via the normal route. A 2-day program led by IFMGA-certified guide Indio. Previous acclimatization will be needed.


2 Days

Jun, Jul




If you are a mountain lover, you have probably heard about Mont Blanc. With its 4810 meters, it is the highest mountain in the Alps and one of the most famous, imposing and visited – not only by locals but by mountaineers from all over the world. Since its first ascent in 1786, Mont Blanc has been the goal of many adventurers who have it at the top of their bucket list.

If you are looking for a serious objective in Mont Blanc, I strongly recommend this two-day ascent via the Gouter route. Here I give you more details about the itinerary:

On day 1 ,we will leave very early from Nid d’Aigle (2372m) where we will arrive via the Bellevue cable car and the Mont Blanc train. Then we will continue to the Tête Rousse refuge (3167m), from where a more demanding climb begins. After ascending the Aiguille du Gouter, we will finally reach the Gouter mountain hut. It will take a total of 5 hours.

On day 2, the final climb to the Mont Blanc summit awaits us. We will start early in the morning passing by the Dôme de Goûter (4275m), the Vallot Hut (4362m) and L’arête de Bosses to finally reach the imposing 4810-meter-high summit. We will get there with the first rays of sun so we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the view until it’s time to descend. Round trip time: 12 hours.

Remember that to make this ascent in 2 days prior acclimatization will be necessary. Also, you’ll need to have some mountaineering skills, such as walking in crampons and use an ice axe. Finally, a good fitness level is a must.

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.

What people are saying about Indio



Due to bad weather, we had to move the day of the climb, and instead of Indio, Pipa took me to the walls across the river in the Paredon de Los Condores. We had a great day of climbing; Pipa was super chilled and knowledgeable, sharing a lot of helpful tips and guiding me up the wall. We started with easy climbs and kept progressing until maxing it out. I had a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to doing other climbs with Pipa whenever I get a chance to visit Chalten again. Highly recommend.



Had a great time!



(Not Indio) Juan was a very kind and knowledgeable guide. He knew exactly where to take us for warmups and hard climbing routes. His professionalism and attention to detail was clear on the multi pitch route we did - we felt safe and in control the entire time. Juan was also fun and we ended up with tons of local recommendations for things to do for the remainder of our trip. Thank you Patagonia Ascents. Communication was good, attention to detail was great.


Indio was a fun and skillful guide! My friend and I did multi and single pitch with him and felt very safe. We felt like we were climbing with a friend and learned along the way! We will be back, maybe next time mountaineering with Indio!


If you think of organising a trip to the "6miles" in Catamarca, I am in! Thanks for your guiding tour around "El Chalten"!
