Climb Mont Blanc & Weissmies – September 2019

September 1, 2019 - September 7, 2019

Course details »

An ascent of Western Europe’s highest mountain is a big challenge and superb mountaineering expedition.  When combined with a late summer season climb of the Weissmies, 4017m, this provides a great combination of sustained rocky scrambling and superb snow crests.  A magnificent and memorable week of high altitude alpine mountaineering.

This 6 day course includes 3 days in the Swiss Alps mountaineering, warming up, climbing the Weissmies & spending 2 nights in the lovely Swiss Mountain Almageller Hut.

This is a physical programme but the rest day (on the 4th September) before the summit climb hopefully means you are able to actually enjoy a successful ascent of Mont Blanc whilst also making some other fine ascents along the way.

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.  Despite this good record, our courses are not about dragging people to the summit.  This course gives a good progression from the intro Alpine Mountaineering & Gran Paradiso programmes and is a great option for folk wanting to climb Mont Blanc who perhaps also have an eye on a future ascent of the Matterhorn.
