New Skills And Three Days For Summit Climb

Mont Blanc Mountaineering School

Trip:
Mont Blanc Mountaineering School
Location:
Europe

 

From the comforts of huts in the Chamonix valley participants will learn the fundamentals of mountaineering needed not only to ascend the Alps highest peak, 15,771 foot Mont Blanc, but also to scale other glaciated peaks around the world. This course achieves the objectives of our six-day Glacier Mountaineering Course and includes an ascent of one of the most sought after mountains in all of Europe. Participants will learn from their American guides proper ice axe and crampon use, practice crevasse rescue, travel on a rope team, and much more. You will also review rock climbing skills such as rappelling, belaying, and movement on rock. Included in the course will be an acclimatization ascent of one of the nearby peaks. This will also solidify your skills for Blanc.

"As always, Mountain Madness provided me with an excellent guide and itinerary. Geoff was amazing and he truly helped me not only become a better climber with his great teaching skills, but he also helped boost my confidence in the mountains. All in, the Alps itinerary is amazing and I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for myriad adventures packed into one vacation!"
