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.

  • Day 1:
    Arrival Day

    We meet in the evening at the accommodation to go through the plan for the week as well as the current weather and mountain conditions. You will meet with your fellow climbers and your guides so you can ask any questions and will have a chance to go through your kit.

  • Day 2:
    Train and acclimatise in the Mont Blanc Range

    We will head up the Aiguille du Midi at 3,842m to train and acclimatise in the Mont Blanc range. There is an endless supply of fantastic glaciers to walk and mountains to traverse to help prepare you for what's to come later in the trip.

  • Day 3:
    Begin the Mont Blanc Climb

    Climbing Mont Blanc takes two days, but we add in a spare day in case of bad weather to maximise your chance of success. 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.

    4km / 700m up / 0m down / 2 hours

  • Day 4:
    Summit Day

    On summit day we wake up 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

  • Day 5:
    Return to Chamonix

    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.

    7km / 0m up / 1500m down / 4 hours

  • Day 6:
    Departure Day

    Depart. Check out is at 10:00, and after one last hearty breakfast we sadly bid farewell. Please note: This itinerary is based on good weather and mountain conditions as well as hut availability. Sometimes we may opt for 2 consecutive nights in the Tete Rousse or Gouter hut or another variety of huts or days allocated to climbing Mont Blanc. Should an ascent of Mont Blanc not be possible due to dangerous conditions or bad weather, we will provide alternative options. During June and July we may opt for the Italian normal route (via Rifugio Gonella) if conditions allow. It is a stunning alternative route to the Gouter route and is often much less frequented.

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.

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 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.

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.
