Meeting at 17:00 in Chamonix/Argentiere- the exact hotel’s address will be sent to you before the activity – for a briefing and a gear check.
With the Grands Montets lift we travel quick to the Grands Montets glacier (3200 m)- for a snow and ice course, after which, we descent to the Argentiere hut (2769 m) for an overnight (about 450 meters descent, max 2.5 hours walk).
A short climb in the huts area- the idea is to spend some hours above 3,000 meters- and descent to the valley (overnight in a hotel in the valley).
After resting well in the valley, we will head up to our Mont Blanc mountain hut- the Cosmique or the Tete Rousse huts are both good candidates for our Mont Blanc ascent. The destination will be decided about a week before our activity depending on the conditions on the mountain. (1100 meters elevation gain, about 4 hours walking to Tete Rousse hut)
Mont Blanc ascent and an overnight in the Gouter (depending on the hut between 1400 meters climbing to 1100 meters, the summit day is usually calculated as a 10-12 hours day).
Today’s plan is to get back down to the valley where our activity will be concluded! Estimated time to reach the valley- 12:00-14:00.
Meeting in Chamonix/Argentiere- the exact hotel’s address will be sent to you before the activity.
3 nights in mountain huts, 2 nights in hotel.
No previous experience in snow/ice or rock is required.
I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.
In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.
We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!
