Description

Join me for this 2-day privately guided ascent of the iconic Mont Blanc, the tallest mountain at the heart of the Alps!

As one of the most famous mountains in the world, Mont Blanc needs no introduction.  Located near the famous French mountain town of Chamonix, this legendary peak rises to an altitude of 4,810 meters, crowning the massif that surrounds it.  Reaching the summit of Mont Blanc is a goal for many mountaineers who seek to test themselves on the mountain’s icy slopes.

I am pleased to offer privately guided ascents of this beautiful and legendary peak, with a maximum of 1 – 2 participants depending on the route.  We can choose to take either the Gouter Route (max. 2 participants) or the Trois Monts route (max. 1 participant). Should you prefer the Gouter Route, we will trek 5 hours to the Gouter Hut on the first day and reach the summit early the second day.  The Trois Monts route requires a 1 hr walk to the Cosmiques Hut on the first day, with our summit push early the next morning.  After we celebrate our summit of the tallest point in Western Europe, we descend to Chamonix on foot and by lift.

To successfully complete a summit of Mont Blanc in 2 days, a solid fitness level is required.  Mont Blanc is a challenging mountain to climb, and previous knowledge of mountaineering techniques such as the use crampons and ice axe is strongly recommended.  Participants should be acclimatized prior to beginning the ascent.

Book now and it will be a challenging yet rewarding experience, as we summit Mont Blanc and stand on the highest point in the Alps!
