Our 5 day program includes the technical preparation and acclimatization necessary to face this challenge; 2 days of training in the necessary techniques in the Tour and Trient glacier and 3 days of ascent to dose the effort and manage the conditions of the route and the weather.
Snow and ice slopes from 35 ° to 40 °, with the conditioning of the altitude!
Easy climbing II and III degree. If you are used to rock climbing, you will feel much more comfortable on the way up and down Goûter.
However, it is recommended to practice some 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.
Elevations of 800 to 1700 m depending on the refuge from where we leave.
Stages of 6 hours on average and 12 hours for Mont Blanc.
Very good physical condition is required. You need to get in good shape, the first 3 days are not meant to provide good fitness. Reaching the summit is only half way, the ascent ends when you return to the valley. It is recommended to practice endurance sports regularly: running, mountain biking ...

What does "two possible attempts to reach the top" mean?
This means that we either make the summit on day 2 from Tête Rousse, or on day 3 from the Gouter refuge with descent into the valley on the same day.
If an unsuccessful attempt is made during the ascent, for any reason, there will be no second attempt without additional remuneration, which will be defined with the guide.
Adaptation to bad weather forecast D2:
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, MonteRosa ...
