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.

Matterhorn Expedition

One of the world's most renowned and historical mountains, the Matterhorn is a near perfect pyramid and stands at an altitude of 4478m. In this challenging expedition we combine a preparation climb on the south ridge of Weissmies (4017m), and a climb on the infamous Hornli route on the Matterhorn. Beginning in Chamonix, the first two days of the trip are spent training and brushing up on skills with our guide - practising alpine skills and technique on the traverse of Weissmies before tackling the more technical Matterhorn. This climbing program is designed only for experienced climbers and mountaineers, with a guide to climber ratio of 1:1 for the ascent.
