Mont-Blanc ascent with a Chamonix Mont Blanc guide
To Climb Mont Blanc : a dream
Mont Blanc is a tremendous challenge requiring both fitness and
determination to succeed, but we'll train you in all the necessary
skills even if you've no previous mountaineering experience.
But for complete beginner, it is better to climb first a peak like "Grand Paradiso".
In all cases, it is better to book for a weekly course as we will not offer to guide you just for the top if we don't know you.
The programme below is not fixed and can change if conditions, weather
or hut bookings vary. Your guide will choose the best routes and venues
for the conditions at the time.
Mont Blanc ascent sample programme:
D1: Ice training day on Mer de Glace
D2/D3: First summit like Aiguille de The night is spent in a mountain hut at altitude to help with the acclimatisation proccess.
D4: Lachenal peak before going to Cosmiques Hut
D5: Traverse on Mont-Blanc (D6 extra day in case of bad weather on D5)
=> Book as soon as possible as the caban are often full and start to train for long days at relatively low intensity.
