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. The Gran Paradiso ( 4061m) is the ideal peak for a first experience of the high-mountain environment. Our three-day programme takes you on a superb loop from the Chabot hut to the Victor Emmanuel hut. This combination guarantees you a more evenly spread physical challenge and enables to you to make the most of the ambiance of the glaciated terrain.
This course is a great way to prepare for the ascent of Mont Blanc.
