Description

If you’re an advanced mountaineer and would like to spend 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 the following days we’ll focus on rock skills (such as short pitching, anchors and rappelling), ice climbing around an alpine hut, and we’ll go for different climbs that will allow to practice and learn by putting our skills to action. 

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.

Mountain 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!

Great trip that I'll remember forever, Tal did a great job of managing the logistics of a puzzle with many moving pieces! Both leading guides Jeff and Andi were first class and made the trip. Overall, top notch I would be happy to recommend!

There were several hiccoughs with Explore-share dates in the beginning. But, they got resolved quickly with responsive staff. It was a bit confusing at first because different guides would accept the offer and then fall away. So the early process through ES was a bit confusing. With multiple different emails and multiple different proposed guides that seemed to disappear as quickly as they popped up. This is why ES is rated 4 stars. ES is a good idea but just needs to fine tuned. ES offers a great way to get access to guides when you have few contacts. I think it is a good idea and has a future. The staff were fabulous though at reassuring and updating me. Once the booking was confirmed with Tal Niv we had very good communication over a period of a few months. Tal was organised and in touch frequently. There was a mis-communication in the trip dates (human error) but Tal quickly resolved it and managed to secure us Julian Resch who did an excellent job guiding us on an acclimatisation hike up the east ridge of Weissmies. Julian was easy comfortable company and was very professional. He was patient, encouraging and kind. I would recommend Tal and Julian for anyone seeking an adventure. Good luck ES - we will use you again in the future.

An awesome adventure provided by Tal's company. All requirements were met and schedule was adjusted for the changing weather conditions. It was one of the best guided tours I've experienced so far!
