It is essential to be fit, fully acclimatised and to have all the necessary skills before taking this 3-day course.
In August the weather can frequently be hot and dry, and in these conditions the standard routes on Mt Blanc sometimes become problematic, making route choice crucial for a successful ascent.
The Gouter ridge is usually our preferred option in good conditions, but we may consider other routes, depending on conditions and ratios.
The course fee is for guiding only.
You cover expenses as they are incurred. Please contact the ISM office for our private guiding rates and more information.
By climbing as a small team and keeping the programme flexible to take account of the weather and conditions, we give you the best possible chance of success on the Mt Blanc and an enjoyable ascent in the process.
