Description

Chamonix is best known around the world for its amazing skiing conditions and mountains, but in Summer it turns in to a rock climbing paradise, and I will guide you on these Summer rock and alpine climbing tours from Chamonix, as we explore the myriad of granite rock faces, nooks and crannies of the massif, and even glaciers, with all providing excellent conditions and sensational views of the countryside.

Chamonix is a large alpine resort area located at the junctions of the borders of France, Switzerland and Italy, containing the highest and one of the most famous mountains in Western Europe, Mont Blanc. Once the snow melts away for Summer, the long alpine granite rocks are exposed, which is why it is now has such a good international reputation for rock climbing.

We begin our trip in the morning in Chamonix, and from there we catch the cable car to either Plan des Aiguille or Aiguille du Midi.

Over the course of the day we will have ample opportunity to climb at many of the magnificent and enjoyable spots, including several glaciers, as we admire the sweeping panoramic views that look out over the tranquil and idyllic alpine landscape.

For those who want to test themselves on more challenging and demanding climbs, we can sleep overnight in one of the many refuges dotted around on both the Italian and French sides.

After a whole day of climbing we will be weary yet satisfied at having had the opportunity to rock and alpine climb in this immensely beautiful part of the world.

Rock and alpine climbing at Chamonix is a truly glorious and memorable experience – book now to take part in the fun!

About the guide

guide profile img

I started my adventure with climbing in the early nineties. Through almost three decades, I have managed to reach hundreds of peaks and climb an uncountable numbers of routes all around the world. In Patagonia I climbed both Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy (and some more), I set up new routes in Karakoram climbing an unconquered peak there. I have enjoyed many climbs in Alaska, the Alps and the Dolomites, both in winter and summer. Still, the Polish Tatras hold a special place in my heart as these are the mountains that carved my climbing attitude and character. Winter is my favourite season there – wilderness and the alpine character of the mountains can deliver unforgettable experiences.

Mountain lovers can find a full variety of different challenges in Tatras – solemn granite peaks, demanding big-walls, interesting mixed-climbing, great off-piste areas and wild valleys waiting for ski touring fans. Although I have travelled the world in search of beautiful goals, I have been constantly coming back to fulfil my mountain passions in Tatras. And I am sure there is still so much more to be discovered there.

As an IFMGA guide and a seasoned climber, I invite you to discover mountains with me. Decades of exploration in that mountains have led me to who I am today – a professional mountain guide ready to share my mountain experience with you in Tatras or any other part of the mountain world.

Whether you want to climb a peak or ridge, ski off-piste or discover new places - I am here to help you make your dream come true. My point as a guide is to get you to safely fulfil your mountain dream. If you don’t have any yet – don’t worry, with my experience and your skills we will definitely find a suitable adventure for you!

I am an IFMGA/IVBV/UIAGM certified mountain guide and a member of Polish Association of High-mountain Guides.
