Mont Blanc, the highest peak of Europe, is without a doubt the most popular mountain in the world. Under-estimated by many, its ascent is a relatively simple snow route at the high altitude which requires a solid physical condition necessary for the 10/12 hours of effort at high altitude. In order to increase your chances of success, we recommended that you also do a snow route or better our “Mont Blanc five day course”
First 4000m course
High altitude appeals to you and reaching the summit of a 4000 m peak has been your mountaineering dream. During this 3 days course, you will practice on snow, ice or rock in the Mont-Blanc range above the Chamonix Valley. The last 2 days of the course are spent in Italy, where your dream becomes reality: reaching the summit of Gran Paradiso ( 4061m).
This course is a great way to prepare for the ascent of Mont Blanc.
