Open to everyone
Situated in the heart of the Alps – along the French and Italian border – Chamonix has long been a destination for avid rock climbing enthusiasts.
Boasting innumerable different day trips within easy reach of the iconic resort town, there are plenty of fantastic sport climbing routes available for participants of every level.
After meeting up in the morning at a predetermined location, the fun begins! We will make our approach to the crags up which we plan to climb and start climbing.
For beginners, the day begins with some instruction about all of the gear and how to use it. We then go over the basics of sport climbing and make some ascents.
For more advanced beginners, we will also go over how to belay, top rope and lead climbing, various climbing techniques and some alpine basics (i.e. abseiling and how to build a belay).
For intermediate and advanced climbers, there is no need for any tutorials and we can just hit the rocks and climb together.
Regardless of where we go or what we do, expect phenomenal views at every turn. And the farther up we climb, the better they get, so be sure to bring your sense of adventure with us out onto the rocks.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and personalised 1-day sport climbing experience around Chamonix-Mont Blanc!

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.
One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.

If you're climbing the Matterhorn you need to go with a local guide who has climbed it many times and therefore knows the correct route. On our climb we encountered a lot of people off of the main route, which takes longer, is more dangerous, results in rocks being knocked down, and even getting stuck on the mountain without shelter for the night (as four climbers had the previous night). Daniel has climbed the Matterhorn over a hundred times and did nine days in a row in 2022. He was able to tell me to go straight, right or left and where footholds were. He is a very strong climber and I felt that he would probably catch me on the short rope if I slipped. It turned out that I was not in as good shape as I needed to be, so I climbed more slowly than ideal, for which I got a verbal flogging (hence minus one star). I made it to the Solvay hut in about 2:30 before we turned around. Notes: (1) You need to book two days with Daniel earlier in the week for a test climb to see how you do rock climbing and with crampons. All of the larger guide services do this. (2) You pay for your ticket and his for the tram, as well as for the rooms in the Hornli hut. (3) You might be able to borrow an ice ax and other gear. Check when you book, then confirm a few days before. You can rent gear at Yosemite and other shops in Zermatt.
Very easy, setting up the trip and talking with the guide was easy.

Excellent trip, Daniel was a great guide and positively challenged us. He made us feel safe. Would love to book another trip with him!
Agree with prior review that pretrip communication could improve, but otherwise, superb guide and person
All was good, Daniel was exceptional: friendly, attentive, professional. I was surprised I had to additionally pay for the hut as I bought all inclusive package and it was no where mentioned about additional costs.
Pre-hike communication could have been clearer - we weren't exactly clear about who was bringing certain items, or what the recommended gear we needed. In the end, it worked out fine, and the climb was great! Daniel is a very knowledgeable guide.
We did the traverse of Grand Combin from Cabane de Valsorey over Valsorey, Grafeneire and Tsessette, arriving at lac Mauvoisin via Arête de Boussine. Daniel is an excellent guide and great company. It was a long tour, and Daniel made sure that it was always safe and enjoyable finding the best way up on Arête du Meitin in the dark.

Fantastic guide. Had a great time with my first real mountaineering experience, learnt a lot during the process and always felt safe.I highly recommend him and I am looking forward for the next trips.
Daniel was a pleasure to climb with! I look forward to coming back out to the Alps and will definitely use him again. Highly recommend!
Great trip! We enjoyed every minute - Daniel was great as a guide and quickly and safely gets you past the trickier sections so as to maximise the fun and enjoyment. We felt safe and confident with him at all times and wouldn't hesitate to book another tour!
We planned a trip to the grossglockner early August this year with Daniel. On arrival in Austria the weather turned bad with nearly 24/7 rain and thunder in between so we wouldn't reach the peak. The guide proposed to go sportclimbing indoors, or go a week later, communication was fast and clear. We didn't have a week so decided to cancel the trip, for which Daniel offered a partial refund. Have a look at Daniel's website for detailed information on gear, route and requirements. Once back in our home country we couldn't get in touch anymore, but Explore-Share took over communication and solved remaining issues. Hope to finish this ascent sometime in the future with better weather conditions, and good luck to Daniel!
Daniel was an excellent guide. Great experience!
This weekend i went with Daniel to the Grossglockner via the normal route and the experience was perfect. Everything was arranged and felt safe the whole trip. i would reccomend Daniel to everyone who wants to climb some mountains in the alps. In the future i will again make use of his services if i decide to climb in the alps once more.
very good guide, wonderful experience
Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!
