Climb Mont Blanc
Climb Mont Blanc - The Highest Summit in Western Europe with our British Mountain Guides!
After training and acclimatising from our base in Evolène we climb Mont Blanc on a 2:1 ratio, usually by the Goûter Ridge.
There are three days set aside for climbing Mont Blanc which adds flexibility in timing the ascent to get suitable weather. Instruction in Alpine skills is given during the important first 3 days of training and acclimatising. The price includes 6 days guiding and guides' expenses, full-board accommodation when staying in the valley and transport to/from Chamonix.
