Rock climbing at Pyramide du Tacul

Rock climbing at Pyramide du Tacul | undefined

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.


1 Day

Jun - 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!

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



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



Perfect experience with a wonderful guide



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 a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele from PeaksHunter. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience with PeaksHunter.
