Description

If you are a beginner aiming to improve your skills in high altitude peaks, you should join this great rock climbing journey at Pyramide du Tacul.

This is one of the several satellite peaks of Mont Blanc du Tacul. Rising from the Geant Glacier, these impressive vertical pinnacles boast superb solid granite rock climbing routes.

This time, we’ll take a fun 250 m rock climbing route known as ‘Ottoz route’. This is an easy route ideal for beginners, with 8 pitches reaching a max V grade in the UIAA grading system.

We’ll meet early in the morning at Entreves cable car station (1300 m), in Courmayeur. From there, a ride on the Skyway Mont Bianco will take us to Pointe Helbronner (3462 m), where we’ll enjoy a stunning panoramic view from a terrace.

Then, we’ll move to the glacier and prepare our equipment to approach the base of Pyramide du Tacul. We’ll wear crampons and hike on a rope. A 1.20 hour approach will lead us to the base of the crag.

After reaching the top we’ll rappel back to the base and return to Helbronner. We’ll be back at Courmayeur by the afternoon.

Rock climbing in high altitude peaks is a wonderful challenge. Send me a request for this 1-day rock climbing trip at Pyramide du Tacul and live a unique experience!
