If you’re an advanced mountaineer and would like to spend 1 week learning and practicing in the French and Italian Alps, you can’t miss this chance. Follow me on this program and enjoy the best mountaineering in Chamonix.

The following are some of the contents that we’ll see during the course: belaying techniques, moving on mixed terrains, anchors in snow and ice, route planning, rope techniques and rescue systems. By the end of the program, you’ll be able to plan your climbs and execute them with safety using all the incorporated skills.

First of all, we’ll meet in Chamonix or Argentière at 5 pm and have a short trip briefing. On day 2, we’ll focus on rock skills, such as short pitching, anchors and rappelling. Day 3 will be the day of ice climbing around an alpine hut. On days 4-6, we’ll go for different climbs that will allow to practice and learn by putting our skills to action. Finally, on day 7, we’ll take a route near the hut and descend to the valley.

Regarding requirements, take into account that the program is for advanced participants with background experience on rock and ice. Also, it’s a demanding course, so it’s mandatory to have a very good level of fitness.

Are you ready for this intensive course? Then don’t hesitate to send the request to make your reservation and enjoy mountaineering in Chamonix.

About the Guide


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!
