Description

Join me on this circuit, mountaineering in classic routes. I will guide you as we go on this one-week experience across the Alps. Experienced mountaineers, this is perfect for you.

An important aspect of this circuit is that the route we chose will be tailored to your ability and ambition. We will decide this together, taking into account weather conditions.

First, I will meet you at Courmayeur on Sunday. After that, we will go over the evening briefing, regarding safety routines, kit checks and rental equipment. Here, I will also decide together with you, our route for the week.

Next, on Day 2, we will go on am acclimatization climb on a high quality mountain route. This will help you brush up your alpine skills. I will guide you up either to Aiguille du Marbreé Traverse (3,535 m) or Tour Ronde Gervasutti Couloir (3,792 m), among other options.

Then, the real alpine climbing adventure will begin. Tuesday through Friday, I will lead you across any of the following classic routes, depending on your skills and ambition, as well as weather conditions:

  • Aiguille du Midi north face Mallory-Porter

  • Aiguille d'Argentiére y Couloir

  • Mont Blanc du Tacul Jaeger

  • Col du Plan north couloir

  • Courtes north-east face

After that, on Saturday morning, we will finish the circuit back at Courmayeur.

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1966. I was an aspirant Mountain Guide from 1986 and a Mountain Guide (IFMGA) as from 1989. In 1988, I joined the Mountain Guides company of Courmayeur, which was the 1st Italian guiding company and the 2nd in the world in 1850. From 1995 to 2001, I had the role of leading guide with as main function the coordination of the work and the promotion of the guiding programs we were organising.
From 1986, I worked in the Mountain Rescue Team of the Aosta Valley. I became a Mountain Rescue Instructor in 2000. As a mountain guide, I practice a lot mountaineering, rock climbing, off-piste skiing, ski touring, snowshoeing, etc.
The past 22 years, I have climbed with my clients many classic routes in the Alps, of mixed, ice and rock; I have climbed the mountains of South America (Aconcagua in Argentina, Cordillera Blanca in Peru, trekking in Torres del Paine in Chile and Fitz Roy in Argentina, the slopes of Alpamayo Pequeno, Sajama, Huayna Potosi, in Illimani Bolivia, Cayambe, Cotopaxi, Chimborazo in Ecuador). Each year, I keep on travelling the Andes with clients and friends to discover new mountains to satisfy the desire of mountaineering.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
