MontBanc 4.810m, 3 days

This is our best seller program to summit MontBlanc, only suitable for those with good preparation, excellent physical condition and with experience in mountaineering.
3 days of ascent to guarantee the maximum probability of success, managing the conditions of the route, the group and the weather.

Subject to changes depending on mountain conditions, weather and fitness of participants.

Day 1: Tete Rousse
Climb in the morning by the Bellevue cable car and then the rack train to the Nid d’Aigle.
An easy path will take us to the Tête Rousse glacier. If conditions allow it, we can cliimb up to Gouter to expend the first night there.
Night at the Tête Rousse refuge (3167m) or Gouter (3800m)

Day 2: Mont Blanc summit – Goûter refuge
Departure at around 6 am for the Aiguille du Goûter and the Goûter refuge at 3800 m. We rest for about an hour at the refuge to regain strength and then head towards the Dôme du Gouter for easy snow slopes. A short descent to the Coll del Dôme crossing the glacial plateau and a steep climb to the Vallot refuge where we will take a short break. We will then continue along the Edge of Bags, sharp and airy, where we need to hold our breath and concentrate on our feet. We will continue to climb bumps towards the reward at the end, hoping to see the top appear.

Arriving at the top, celebration and photo shoot, then a small snack you need to start the descent. Remember, you’ve only been halfway there and you need to stay focused.
It takes approximately 2:30 to arrive at the Goûter refuge, where we will end today with a well-deserved break.
Hours: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Elevation gain: + 1630 m and – 1000 m

Day 3: Return to Chamonix
Waking up early in the morning, rested and ready for the descent. After breakfast we begin the descent quietly to the Tête Rousse refuge. Return to the Eagle’s Nest train.
Hours: 3 to 4 hours.
Elevation gain: – 1400 m

-TECHNICAL LEVEL
Snow and ice slopes from 35 ° to 40 °, with the height component!
Easy climbing - II and III. If you are used to climbing easy rocks, you will feel much more comfortable on the Goûter climb.
However, we recommend that you practice climbing to become familiar with the specific movements and techniques of this discipline and to make the ascent and descent to the Gouter refuge even easier. Attention to the assessment we put, "II and III or easy", are assessments of climbing and mountaineering aimed at people who practice it. This does not necessarily mean that it is easy for people who do not practice climbing or mountaineering.

-PHYSICAL LEVEL
Elevations of 800 to 1700 m depending on the refuge from which we leave.
Stages of 6 hours on average and 12 hours for Mont Blanc.
Very good physical condition is required. You must arrive in good shape, the first 3 days will not be there to provide you with fitness. By the time you reach the top, you've only done half of it. Regularly practice endurance sports: running, mountain biking ... (ask our frequently asked questions document)

-PROGRAM CHANGES DEPENDING ON TIME
What does "two possible attempts to reach the top" mean?
This means that we either make the summit on the 2th from Tête Rousse, or on the 3th from the Gouter refuge with descent into the valley on the same day.
If you make an attempt and fail during the ascent, for any reason, there will be no second attempt without additional remuneration, which will be defined with the guide.

Adaptation to D2 bad weather forecast:
D1: climb to the Tête Rousse refuge
D2: climb to the Gouter refuge
D3: ascent to Mont Blanc and descent to the valley.

Forecast of bad weather for the D1/2/3 on Mont Blanc, we will look for alternatives to reach other peaks of more than 4000m: Gran Paradiso, Monte Rosa ...
