5 days course to prepare, acclimatise and climb the Mont Blanc peak.

The Mont Blanc Mountain Range offers an endless playground for mountaineering, rock or alpine climbing and ski mountaineering that’s renowned worldwide. The whole story started from the range’s highest summit and the top of the Alps, Mont Blanc 4810 m, more than 200 years ago and is still the most obvious way to start discovering these beautiful glaciated mountains.

Your guide for this trip is Mihnea Prundeanu, UIAGM mountain guide: “I personally climbed Mont Blanc for my first time in 2007 as my first adventure in the  French Alps and since then I returned every year and climbed many other interesting routes, peaks ridges, couloirs in this area.  I believe that once you get to the top of Mont Blanc different new perspectives open up, and even if this climb became the most popular and sometimes even a bit crowded it still should be a “must do” for every mountaineer or mountain lover at least once in a lifetime.”

The ascent of Mont Blanc (either on 3 mountains route or Gouter) is still a serious climb due to the logistics required, the strategy of the climb, some objective dangers and less but not least the technical difficulties and altitude. Climbing the mountain with a more experienced mountaineer (a guide) who knows the area well and has good technical abilities will increase significantly your chances of success and safety.  The 5 days course of this climb has also the objective to teach and prepare you for this climb itself but also for other similar climbs. Acclimatisation is also an important for Mont Blanc, so having extra days to let your body adapt to the thin air and low pressure is better and safer.

The following program is tailored for you to go through all these steps and also to see as many areas as possible from this mountain range.
