Legendary Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps. On this trip, you will climb Mont-Blanc along the Dômes de Miage ridge to the Bionnassay ridge, from where the journey continues to Mont-Blanc. This route is demanding to the highest peak in the Alps. In addition to good fitness, it also requires rock climbing skills.

 

If you’re looking for a challenge for yourself, here it is. We climb the ridges mountain guide per customer ratio (1: 1) due to the technical complexity of the route. After acclimatization, begins the breathtaking Dômes de Miage ridge, from where we ascent to the Bionnassay ridge itself. On this ridge we climb cliff right at the morning, after from the top of Bionnassay you continue a good way towards Dôme de Gouter on almost like knife blade snow ridge. From the Dôme de Gouter, you will join the basic routes to the top of Mont-Blanc. On way Back, the aim is to desent on the Italian side, and return down a different route, but this also depends on the conditions on mountains.

 

This trip requires good condition and therefore cannot be recommended as the first Alpine climbing peak. Before the actual Mont-Blanc peak, during the week you will be acclimatized either to the only peak fully on the Italian side over 4000 m in Gran Paradiso, or to some other similar similar peak. Such a trip in itself can also serve as the first Alpine climbing peak without the Mont-Blanc peak itself. We do the acclimatization together and in a guided way, as this greatly improves the chances of topping Mont-Blanc. The peak of Mont-Blanc is at an altitude of almost 5,000 m, so the altitude begins to affect progress no later than after reaching 4,500 meters.
