An IFMGA mountain guide takes you on an exciting rock climbing adventure at 'Lépiney route', a classic route in Trident du Tacul, considered one of the best climbs of the Mont Blanc massif.
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
The Lépiney route at Trident du Tacul was climbed for the first time in 1919. Today, it's an indisputable classic route of the Mont Blanc massif.
Raising from the Geant Glacier, Trident du Tacul (3300 m) is a beautiful granite tower. In fact, it's a satellite peak of Mont Blanc du Tacul.
To get there, we'll take the Skyway cable car at Entreves station, in Courmayeur. The cable car will take us up to Pointe Helbronner (3462 m) where we'll enjoy a stunning view from the terrace.
Once there, we'll hike for 1.30 hours from the glacier to the base of Trident du Tacul. We'll have to wear crampons on our mountain boots and walk on a rope.
Lépiney route is a 250 m route with 9 pitches, reaching a max difficulty of grade V in the UIAA grading system. From the top, you'll admire a breathtaking view of Mont Blanc.
After the climb, we'll rappel to the base and walk back to Pointe Helbronner. We'll get back to Courmayeur by the afternoon.
Don't miss the chance of climbing one of the classics of the Mont Blanc massif! Send me a request so we can start planning this trip together.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
