Description

Ascending the majestic and world-famous Mont Blanc is something that every mountaineer has to experience, and I invite you to join me on a guided tour that will entail the most classic way of doing this, as we acclimatize in Chamonix and follow the beautiful, archetypal path to the top.

Mont Blanc towers high above Europe, and is the highest mountain in The Alps. It has long been considered a climbing mecca, and such is its prominence it is being considered as a World Heritage site due to its raw beauty and perfect alpine terrain bringing large quantities of crowds each year.

After meeting on the first day in Chamonix/Argentiere for a safety briefing and gear check, we head off the next morning to the absolutely mesmerizing Grand Montets glacier, a tranquil slice of beauty, where we complete a snow and ice course. Afterwards we spend the night in the Argentiere hut.

The next two are spent acclimatizing to altitudes over 3000m, and the 4th night is spent at either the Cosmique or Tete Rousse huts, both picturesque places nestled amongst the snow and idyllic surrounding landscapes.

The 5th day is when we ascend to the top of the truly grand Mont Blanc, and once you are at the top you will never feel more alive as you look out on the sweeping views across Europe and beyond, the crisp air filling up your lungs
