A 1-day rock climbing adventure for beginners in Ottoz climbing route at Pyramide du Tacul, one of the satellite peaks of the Mont Blanc du Tacul, together with an IFMGA mountain guide.
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
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!

There are no words to express the extraordinary experience I had not only of doing my first via Ferrata but having Enrico as my guide. The coordinating logistics process was outstanding despite changes on my part along the way and the E-S Adventure Guides staff was very prompt in responses and adjustments. They were very knowledgeable of routes and specific questions I had. On thé Via Ferrata itself, the entire time I felt 100% safe with Enrico despite being on a challenging route and weather starting to fade. He is truly the best company for a climb and I’m grateful for his endless positive encouragement. I was lucky to have met such an inspiring human being. I aim to do many more via ferratas now and when location is possible, I’d go only with E-S Adventure Guides (& Enrico!)
A bit confusing at first to find the prices, but good services.
Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

Very beautiful trip, with several different interesting types of challenges (need for snow shoes, crampons, varying temperatures, etc.) - We did the ascent in May which still means a lot of snow making the trip quite tough (you need to be in decent shape and have a some experience to enjoy the trip).
We had wonderful days and a lot fun. All arrangments were perfect and easy! Our guide Paolo has been not only an excellent mountain and skiing guide but also he is very nice and empatic person who shared his love and knowledge of the Aosta valley! Wonderful days and skitouring, well organised, we will come again!
Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again
Greetings to Marica - excellent arrangements !
We had a great trip, the weather on the particular day was unfortunately bad but our guide was very adaptable and motivated.
We loved our guide and our adventure. She was very accommodating to our needs and nice to be around. I would totally book with explore share again.
We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.
I had an amazing time with Marika! It was a great day!
