CLIMB THE HIGHEST PEAK IN WESTERN EUROPE
Climb Mont Blanc (4808m), the highest peak in the Alps and Western Europe. This beautiful, imposing and highly sought-after summit will never disappoint. It's a majestic peak that sits at the roof of the Alps on the border of France and Italy, has magnificent views across the rest of the Alps, and entices mountaineers from all over the world year after year.
We have helped hundreds of clients summit Mont Blanc. Our success rate is extremely high largely due to the way we've built the trip, allowing for multiple acclimatisation days. That way we reduce the chances of altitude sickness getting in the way of your big climb. Oh, and just for good measure, we'll even throw in the summit of Gran Paradiso (4061) in Italy at the start of the week. We're just that kind of company...

YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Anyone with a good level of endurance, fitness, and a sense of adventure. Previous mountaineering experience is a bonus, but not essential as we teach the required skills during the week. However, good physical coordination and an ability to pick up new skills is important on Mont Blanc. Mont Blanc is the highest peak in Western Europe and therefore the altitude and terrain makes it hard work. Determination is needed to keep you going to the top. While this adventure is open to beginner mountaineers, please note that doesn’t mean it’s physically easy. Make sure you have a good base fitness level before you get here as it will make the week feel less strenuous and maximise your chances of success.
If you want to make sure you're ready, join us on our UK Winter Skills trip or our North Wales Mountaineering Intro course and North Wales Alpine Prep course before you come. Not sure whether you're ready? No sweat! Drop us a note and we'll be happy to talk it through with you. Or take our Mont Blanc 'Readiness' test and find out!

OUR CHAMONIX ACCOMMODATION
When not climbing the mountain we know the importance of having a cosy mountain base, with comfortable rooms and a warm atmosphere. But don't let that nice linen and chocolate on the bed win your favour just yet. Wait until you've experienced a good old mountain hut with its basic, but charming amenities and friendly hosts. We bet you go home missing the huts more!

WHAT TO EXPECT
HERE'S YOUR ITINERARY
While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain and the weather sometimes has other ideas. We will always remain as flexible as possible, which is why we only work with experienced and knowledgeable guides, to make sure we can change any plans if required. You can check out the full itinerary here.
You will meet with your guide for a briefing in the evening to go through the plan for the week as well as the current weather and mountain conditions. Here you will have a chance to go through your kit under the experienced eye of your guide and can ask any questions that you may have.
Depart for Gran Paradiso National Park
After breakfast you depart for Italy to the Rifugio Chabod in Gran Paradiso National Park (1 hr 30 mins drive). Before leaving you will sort out any last minute gear rentals / purchases in Chamonix. You set off on the trek up to the mountain hut mid-morning and will arrive at Rifugio Chabod at 2750m altitude around lunchtime. Once at the mountain hut, you will can tuck into a tasty Italian lunch and, if time and weather permits, have an outdoor session covering basic introduction to your equipment.
7km / 900m up / 0m down / 3 hours Trekking
Climb Gran Paradiso
A big day involving a 1,300m altitude ascent of Gran Paradiso, the highest peak entirely in Italy (4061m). The ascent is mostly on snow except the moraine after the mountain hut, and the final rocky section of scrambling to the summit (5-7 hours). It is a spectacular summit and this is great training for Mont Blanc because a lot of similar techniques are required on both peaks. The climb is a test and will put you in good stead for the main summit attempt of Mont Blanc later in the week. After the summit you will return to the Rifugio Chabod, where you can order a hearty lunch to refuel after all that effort, and then relax for the afternoon and evening. By staying in Rifugio Chabod both nights it gives the advantage of leaving unnecessary clothing/equipment there to make the ascent as light as possible. Furthermore, staying up at altitude instead of heading all the way down to the valley helps with your acclimatisation process.
10km / 1300m up / 1300m down / 6-8 hours Mountaineering
Return to Chamonix
Wake up at around 07:00 for breakfast before descending around 8:30 back down to the valley. You will be transferred back to Chamonix to arrive around lunchtime (1 hr 30 mins drive). It is very important that you can have a good rest in the afternoon in preparation for the coming days. We will also finalise any equipment changes.
7km / 0m up / 900m down / 2-3 hours Trekking
Begin the Mont Blanc Climb
Climbing Mont Blanc takes two days. We start by driving to Les Houches (10 min) and then taking uplifts on the Bellevue cable car followed by the Tramway du Mont Blanc train to the Refuge du Nid d’Aigle which sits at 2372m. From here we hike to the Tête Rousse hut (3167m) for an overnight stay in preparation for our summit attempt the following morning. In early season, if the cablecar or train aren't running we will arrange a 4x4 transfer to Bellevue.
4km / 700m up / 0m down / 2 hours
On summit day we wake up very early and ascend to the summit of Mont Blanc. This will take between 8-10 hours depending on conditions and your physical ability. On the descent from the summit, we spend the night in the Goûter hut (3813m). By having this second night in the Goûter hut we are less in a rush to make it down to the valley or the Tête Rousse hut, and it also means we cross the Grand Couloir early the following day. These are all carefully considered factors that we’ve analysed over many years guiding this route to maximise your chance of a successful summit.
10km / 1700m up / 1000m down / 8-10 hours
Return to Chamonix (possible spare summit day*)
In the morning we descend from the Goûter hut (3813m) to the Refuge du Nid d’Aigle (2372m) and take the Tramway du Mont Blanc followed by the Bellevue cable car down to Les Houches. The descent normally takes around 4-5 hours. You then travel back to the Chamonix and that signals the end of the climb. This will normally be around 13:00-14:00 in the afternoon. Usually everyone heads out into Chamonix for dinner or drinks together to round off the week.
*For those who have a high level of fitness and solid technical skills, there is a the possibility to summit Mont Blanc from Refuge du Gouter and return back down to the Nid d'Aigle in one day (in the case of bad weather on summit day). Please note that this option is based on suitable weather, conditions and only for those who have a high level of fitness and technical skills due to the time required for such an endeavour, and the importance of being able to descend the Grand Couloir safely in an able (and not exhausted) state.
7km / 0m up / 1500m down / 4 hours
Depart. After one last hearty breakfast we sadly bid farewell. Check-out is at 10am.
MB: Can I change my trip dates?

Ski/snowboard trousers aren’t suitable for the Mont Blanc trip. You’ll need a pair of mountaineering specific trousers ( Read more
Ski/snowboard trousers aren’t suitable for the Mont Blanc trip. You’ll need a pair of mountaineering specific trousers (soft shell) as well as a waterproof hard shell pair that are lightweight and not insulated. Conditions can be harsh especially on the summit days so it’s important to have these two layers. We also recommend to bring lightweight thermal leggings. Read through our kit list for a full description of what you’ll need to bring.

Let’s face it, these types of trips don’t come risk free. We’re putting ourselves in amazing environments but also environments that carry an element of risk with them. In order to protect yourself adequately you will need a specialist travel insurance that caters for the types of activities you will be undertaking. It is a condition of our agreement that you are covered by adequate travel insurance for your arrangements. Click here to understand which one is for you.
MB: Can I store my belongings with Adventure Base when I’m in the huts?

Yes. For the duration of your trip you are able to store your belongings in your accommodation in Chamonix. Please note rooms are usually allocated on a twin share basis, in most cases sharing with others from your course.
MB: Do I need to have previous experience?
This is a hot topic and based on our extensive experience we are confident to say that you do not Read more
This is a hot topic and based on our extensive experience we are confident to say that you do not need any previous mountaineering experience to climb Mont Blanc, but you should have a good head for heights. Your safety is always our top priority and therefore you must have a good level of cardiovascular endurance in order to keep up with the required pace for a Mont Blanc ascent – if you are not fit enough your guide will have no option but to turn you around. See our FAQ ‘What kind of fitness level do I need’.
Crucial to success you must also be able to learn new skills quickly and have an ability to develop new skills, such as walking with crampons whilst attached to your guide with a rope. These are skills your guide will teach during your first 3 days with us, prior to your Mont Blanc ascent. This training period is also an opportunity for your guide to evaluate your skills and capability to climb Mont Blanc.

All of our guides are highly experienced and personable people. They have all been hand picked by us for their skills, character, and knowledge of the route up Mont Blanc and this is the most important thing when it comes down to making key decisions in the mountains and providing the safest experience for our clients. Our guides are of various nationalities and all speak a high level of English and are very attentive. Their primary role is to get you to the summit and back safely, but they add their personal touch with stories and interesting facts about the area, making for a well-rounded thoroughly enjoyable experience. They like to share their knowledge of the mountains and their experiences, so don’t hesitate to ask questions and pick their brains.

The mountain huts we use for our Mont Blanc course are fairly basic but comfortable. You will sleep in dormitories on a shared basis, usually 6-8 per room. Breakfast and a 3 course dinner are included. Lunch is provided at an extra charge. On Gran Paradiso you will most likely stay at the Rifugio Chabod. On Mont Blanc your first night will most likely be spent at the Refuge de Tete Rousse, followed by the Gouter Refuge on the second night.

You need to be able to hike comfortably with a heavy pack for up to 10 hours at a moderate pace. Mountaineering is all about having good cardiovascular endurance to be able to continue being active for long periods. As well as this you will need to have a good head for heights and good overall body balance and awareness. Click here to check out our training advice page.

Your backpack should be between 35-45L. It is important that your backpack has an ice axe strap to stash your ice axe when you are not using it. Your backpack must also have a rain-proof cover. Think light-weight, remember you have to carry it!

You will need B2 or B3 mountaineering boots for Mont Blanc. All mountaineering boots are graded in a B1, B2, Read more
You will need B2 or B3 mountaineering boots for Mont Blanc. All mountaineering boots are graded in a B1, B2, B3 system. B3 boots are the most rigid, and therefore most suitable for walking on snow with crampons, and B2 boots are a little more comfortable but less rigid and also less warm. An example of a B3 boot is the La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX or Scarpa Mont Blanc Pro. Boots can be rented from our partner Concept Pro in Chamonix if you don’t want to invest in your own pair.
MB: What will we do if the weather is bad?
This depends on the winds, the precipitation, and the visibility. In the case of strong winds of 50km or higher, Read more
This depends on the winds, the precipitation, and the visibility.
In the case of strong winds of 50km or higher, reaching the summit of Mont Blanc will be difficult. High winds on the final ridge to the summit are dangerous and therefore summit success is very unlikely. In the case of high winds all over the high peaks of the Alps, we will look for suitable alternatives in the mid-mountain range. It is also unlikely that a helicopter will be able to fly in a rescue situation if there are high winds, which adds to the decision-making process.
In the case of precipitation, when it snows on Mont Blanc it usually means a summit attempt will be difficult. Route finding in a snow storm is generally quite unsafe. An attempt will depend on the amount of the snowfall and it will also greatly depend on the wind.
In the case of bad visibility, such as a whiteout, a summit attempt will be difficult. It depends on the thickness of the cloud and we will most likely still attempt a summit but turn back if necessary.
In the case of high temperatures over an extended period of time, the Grand Couloir between Tete Rousse and Gouter tends to become unsafe due to regular rock fall. The local authorities are quick to issue warnings when the couloir becomes unsafe and it has been known in recent summers that the Gouter route to Mont Blanc has been briefly closed. We will always listen to and obey local warnings.
Should Mont Blanc be unsafe, we will study the conditions on other peaks in the Alps, like Monta Rosa. Should conditions be a lot better elsewhere, we will propose this to you as an option. If not, then we will propose adventures at slightly lower altitudes that keep you safe but are still lots of fun.
MB: Will I definitely make it to the summit?
In short, no. Whilst we will always strive to get you to the summit safely, sometimes the weather or the Read more
In short, no. Whilst we will always strive to get you to the summit safely, sometimes the weather or the conditions of the mountain don’t play ball. When there is precipitation, high winds and low visibility for example, we cannot guarantee reaching the summit and will sometimes recommend an alternative. Each Mont Blanc course has a lead guide. The lead guide will always conduct a meeting with the clients and other guides the day before the Mont Blanc ascent is due to begin. During this meeting the latest weather forecast, conditions of the mountain, and the clients’ own abilities to reach the summit will be discussed. Clients and guides will voice their opinions and/or concerns at the time and then decide how best to proceed. We fully trust and back our guides to make the final decision based on their years of experience on the mountain. They are entrusted to make the final call and the client must accept any decision made. All decisions will have client safety as a top priority.
MEET THE GUIDES
Fabio has guided with us for close to ten years now and has summited Mont Blanc more times than we can remember. He's even helped Sir Richard Branson get to the top of Western Europe. When asked what his favourite mountain was his response was 'It's the mountain not known to many, in a remote country that provides opportunity for adventure. That said, I do love Cordillera Blanca (Peru) to guide in, Montserrat (Barcelona) because it's where it all started for me and Main De Fatima (Mali) because it's special to me!"
Lars is a IFMGA Guide originally from Belgium, with over 20 years of experience climbing and splitboarding in the Mont Blanc massif, the Alps and the greater ranges of the world.

Lars is also one of the most recognised and experienced splitboard guides leading expeditions to Kamchatka, Greenland, Iceland and more.
Miha is an IFMGA guide from Slovenia based between the beautiful Julian Alps and Chamonix. He has been climbing for over 20 years all over the world, including expeditions to Nepal, Tibet, India, Pakistan, USA, Mexico and Peru. He summited an 8000er on his first expedition to the Himalaya, did a first ascent on the previously unclimbed Lasher peak in the Himalaya and climbed El Capitan and many routes over the Alps.
Pablo is originally from a small mountain village in Spain and came to Chamonix with only one dream to become a mountain guide. Based in Chamonix since 2013, Pablo made the Alps his playground as a guide and as an alpinist and has climbed many of the classic alpine routes. He combines mountain guiding with helicopter rescue work in Spain during the off seasons.
Roger has spent over 15 years guiding around the world. He is a Guide instructor at the Spanish School of Guides and is fascinated by discovering mountains with clients. Roger has a big passion about showing people his beloved mountains and sharing climbs and descents with skis.
Born in the Aran Valley, from parents who were ski teachers and mountain guides, the motivation inherited by nature has led him to practice all facets of mountain sports such as climbing, skiing and mountaineering. He has spent his alpine career as part of the FEDME team (Spanish Federation of Mountain and Climbing Sports) and his passion and profession have led him to travel to other continents to carry out his activity.
"My favorite mountain is the Midi d’Ossau, in the Pyrenees. It is a volcanic and unique mountain, that a stands out from the other peaks around. It is a huge fortress with many different features that provides incredible rock climbing routes, and the most important thing is that is 20 minutes from my house ;)"
"If asked about my favourite mountain or mountain range, it wouldn't be easy to answer since perfect places to climb, ski or explore can be found all over the world. But, if I had to choose one, I think I'd say the Pyrenees, not very high, but wild and still quite unknown: the mountains where I learnt when I was a child and where I can still live great adventures far from the crowd".
