Description

Follow me up Mont Blanc, one of the most iconic peaks in the Alps. During 6 days, we’ll explore the French side of this impressive mountain between the Monte Rosa and Monte Bianco group. Join me!

For this adventure, we’ll meet at Gressoney Staffal and spend the first 3 days at the Gnifetti Hut (3,600 meters) for acclimatization. The following three days will be spent attempting to reach the Mont Blanc summit (4,810 meters) from the French side. We’ll try to spend those nights at the Gouter hut (3,800 meters), but it is a hard place to book, so we might stay at the Tete Rousse Hut, just a bit lower down in the mountain. For a more detailed description of the itinerary, make sure to read the section below.

The dazzling Mont Blanc is Europe’s highest mountain and is also considered one of the eight Wonders of the World. Send your request to explore this outstanding mountain. Take part on an epic adventure planned for intermediate mountaineers!

For more summer adventures in Italy, follow me to ascend the Monviso peak and/or enjoy canyoning in different locations around northern Italy.

3 days for beginners, 2 days for more experimented .. and depending on the logging, difficulty increases ... should be more visible .. Booking was made personally but not by the organization team Pros: - Andreas’s skill as a guide, impressive - knowledge of the mountain - calm and patience Cons : - preparation required from Tete Rousse vs Goûter .. better information needed - extra costs related to the summit .. food, lift, trains , ....

We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo's support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn't summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we've scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.
