Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc is unquestionably the most famous alpine peak offering breathtaking panoramic views over the high altitude landscapes of the Alps. Despite its huge reputation, the Mont Blanc ascent is a genuine experience requiring a good level of physical fitness and mountaineering skills.

Our packages supervised by mountain guides always include a period to acclimatize. The main purpose of the acclimatization period is to avoid altitude-sickness. Through the training course carried out, this period is also the way to acquire the essential climbing technique (ice-axe, crampons) to become a proper mountaineer. It is also the opportunity to climb other summits of the Mont Blanc Massif and to discover its lifts system such as the Aiguille du Midi cable car. The itinerary starts at the Nid d’Aigle. A trekking trail leads to the Tête Rousse hut. The ascent of the Aiguille du Goûter in a rocky terrain is partially equipped with cables and leads to the Goûter hut. The climb now continues on snowy glacier via the shoulder of the Dôme du Goûter and the Arête des Bosses leading to the top. The descent follows the same route.

As with all climbing routes in the high mountain environment, the Mont Blanc ascent depends on weather conditions. The alpine peaks are also directly impacted by global warming. The rise in temperatures leads to a degradation of snow conditions, which causes more frequent rock fall. The normal route on Mont Blanc, and the climb to the Goûter hut in particular, is no exception. The mountains impose their own rules and, owing to bad weather or an unsatisfactory level of hazard, the climb of the highest peak in the Alps may not be possible. If this is the case, we will suggest an alterative objective depending on the conditions.
