Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

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.
