BUCKET LIST ADVENTURES

Climb Mont Blanc (4810m) the highest peak in Western Europe. It’s an imposing and highly sought after summit that sits at the roof of the Alps on the border of France and Italy. If your adventure juices are flowing, then keep on reading...

We've 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 and a two day window to summit Mont Blanc. That way we reduce the chances of altitude sickness and bad weather 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...

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 necessary as we teach all required skills during the week. However good physical coordination and an ability to pick up new skills is useful on Mont Blanc. Mont Blanc is the highest peak in Western Europe and therefore the altitude 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. Not sure whether you're ready? No sweat! Drop us a note and we'll be happy to talk it through with you.

BUILT BY KENTON COOL, 14 TIME EVEREST SUMMITER.

STAND ON THE TOP OF WESTERN EUROPE

This trip has been built by Kenton Cool, who was first introduced to mountaineering when he read about Hillary and Norgay’s first ascent on Mount Everest in 1953. Within his 14 Everest summits in 2009 he successfully guided Sir Ranulph Fiennes to a successful Everest summit in 2009.

Kenton didn't start his mountaineering career going straight up Everest. Mont Blanc, is a great first step for anyone looking to take their first steps in to high mountaineering or for those just looking for a great adventure.
