Beginner & Intermediate Alpinism

Chamonix Mont-Blanc offers many possibilities for summit ascents from within a couple of days to a week. Below are some examples of two day and five day programs for beginner and intermediate alpinists. A five day program allows for more possibilities and a greater discovery of the area and the different skills needed. For example it may be possible to spend a day on a rock route, a day on a snow / ice route and a day on a mixed route. Find out more here …

Technical Ascents

Climbing technical routes on summits of the Alps is an exciting and worthwhile project.  The Aiguille Verte, Weisshorn through any route, Mont Dolent through Gallet or north ridge, the Innominata ridge on Mont-Blanc, the ridges and spurs of Grandes Jorasses, the Cresta Signal on Monte Rosa, the famous Eiger Mittelleggi ridge are good examples of these unforgettable routes.  Chamonix Mountain Guide will help you to analyse the conditions before deciding which route is possible, and to reach the bottom of the route with no extra expense of energy due to stress, allowing you to focus on your climbing. Also for the descent you will find it more comfortable to be with a guide. Find out more here …

4000m Collection

Matterhorn is very famous and Chamonix Mountain Guide is happy to guide you on its routes. Those who want to go further and possibly climb all the Alps 4000m summits will find near Chamonix beautiful wild routes, such as integral Brouillard ridge and Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey ridge on the Italian side of Mont-Blanc, traverse of the Aiguilles du Diable leading to Mont-Blanc du Tacul, and the also very famous traverse of the Grandes Jorasses. Find out more here …

High in the Mont Blanc range we find the soaring granite towers and cracks for which Chamonix is so well known, while on the opposite side of the valley there are the adventurous gneiss routes of the Aiguilles Rouge. The softer limestone rock is nearby too, only half an hour away from Chamonix to the west for the nearest locations. Find out more here …
