Course details »

An ascent of Western Europe’s highest mountain is a big challenge and superb mountaineering expedition…

This 3 day Mont Blanc summit period follows on from either our 3 day Climb The Gran Paradiso – Or Climb The Weissmies courses which act as inspiring training and acclimatisation phases.  A day off after those programmes aims to ensure you are also rested as well as acclimatised and technically well prepared so that you can enjoy this summit period in safety and style.

Mountaineers with good existing experience, mountain fitness and acclimatisation can join the course direct. To do this you will need to send detailed information regarding your experience, fitness and pre-ascent acclimatisation schedule or arrange some private guiding prior to the summit period.

We understand the balance between preparing well and saving enough energy for the long summit day and because of this, and our first class Mountain Guides, we have an excellent summit success record on Mont Blanc.

Summit of Mont Blanc and the mixture of emotions are running high. France on one side, Italy on the other. Magnificent view across the Alps, tired legs…must concentrate…must keep going for the descent. Relief? Satisfaction? Elation? Concern about the descent? Mont Blanc is a very personal challenge….

We climb Mont Blanc early and late summer, outside the busy & hot high summer season with the aim of giving you the best experience possible on the mountain.

Despite our very good track record on Mont Blanc our courses are not about dragging people to the summit. We give you quality training and a good insight in to general Alpine Mountaineering and have a fun & sociable time along the way.

We hope to climb with you on Mont Blanc this coming summer season…
