    This 4-day Mont Blanc mountaineering course will combine alpine teachings with peak ascents to improve your climbing skills!

    The Mont Blanc area is probably one of the best mountaineering spots in the world. It combines high mountains, tough to climb ridges and walls, beautiful sceneries and all the comfortable European hospitality.

    So this course is ideal for those of you who want to learn how to move safely in the mountains. It’ll strengthen your skills and you’ll acquire new knowledge and techniques. This way you’ll rise beyond the elementary alpine skills.

    Knots, abseiling, belaying, crampons technique, rock climbing, orienteering, weather, snow and avalanches are some of the topics we’ll see during this four days course.

    We’ll go in ascending order. We’ll start checking the equipment and doing some basic knots and rope work. Then we’ll go over rock climbing and crampons walking techniques. FInally we’ll put all this in practice by climbing some peaks.

    So please contact me if you are interested in doing this 4-day Mont Blanc mountaineering course,  so we can start organizing your trip!

    And if you’re looking for some longer mountaineering programs please check my “TMB” 8-day guided trek in the Alps or my Tour du Mont Blanc for advanced climbers in 6 days.
