Mont Blanc Ascent
Clearly visible above the beautiful mountain town of Chamonix, Mont Blanc is a challenging climb which requires determination and an excellent level of fitness. Our itinerary is designed to allow fit and experienced walkers, who have little or no experience in alpine skills, to appreciate the exhilaration of summiting an alpine peak. Acclimatisation and basic technical training are part of our program for the first two days as we venture into the mountains, crossing beautiful glaciers under a stunning backdrop of snowy peaks and jagged mountains. During these days our guides will train you in the use of an ice axe, crampons and basic rope techniques. Fully prepared, we focus on our ascent of Mont Blanc. We schedule 3 days for the climb, allowing us two chances of reaching the summit, giving our groups a significant advantage and better chance of success. Travelling in teams of 2 clients to 1 guide during the ascent, and often roped up, you will learn to work as a team and move together efficiently in a challenging mountain environment. Summit day is a long and tiring day, however the views from the summit are magnificent and more than just reward for our efforts.

Merci beaucoup !!! Thanks to you and your fellow guides I had a most incredible trek to the summit of Mont Blanc. First, your guidance on the training days was highly invaluable especially to those of us where the use of crampons and ice and snow techniques was an unknown experience. Those days undoubtedly contributed to the success of our ascent
Your guidance and complete attention to my safety on the mountain was outstanding. Not one footstep was missed and I felt completely confident in your care.
I was also particularly grateful for the way you were flexible with the program so we were able to miss the bad weather and summit in almost perfect conditions.
An adventure I will never forget, we shall be back
