Course Highlights

  • Professional and experienced ISM Guide
  • You make your ascent on the quietest days of the week
  • Already being acclimatised gives you the best chance of success

Climbing Mt Blanc is an unforgettable experience, standing on top of the highest summit in the Alps. The climb itself is a challenge of high altitude walking and scrambling both on rock and then glacier and snow to the summit. We offer this 3 day extension to those clients that have first learnt and practiced the required skills to safely climb Mt Blanc and in doing so have also acclimatised during the process.

Booking onto our 3 day Mt Blanc Extension means that apart from being better prepared for your ascent, you will also feel that you play more of a part in it and hence enjoy the experience to it's fullest. You will also have a 2 day weather window to attempt the summit in what is generally a quieter time of the week, off-set from a standard Mt Blanc week.

Is This Course For Me?

ISM willl help you prepare for your ascent of Mt Blanc, but please don’t underestimate the effort involved in climbing a 4000m peak which is closer to 5000m; please turn up to your ISM course with a good level of general fitness to learn and practice the range of mountaineering skills taught and summits cllimbed. A day off after your chosen course to relax, will then feed perfectly into your 3 day My Blanc Extension.

Sample Programme

The 'Trois Monts' route via the Cosmiques hut or the 'Gouter' route via the Tete Rousse and Gouter Huts are usually our preferred options depending on conditions and ratios.

Saturday - The course begins with a briefing meeting at 6.45pm at Le Grand Chalet hotel in Leysin. This is a chance for the guides find out as much as possible about your climbing experience, brief you thoroughly on the plan for the course, sort out any particular equipment requirements and for you to ask any questions that you may have! After the briefing dinner will be served.

Sunday - After an early breakfast we drive to Chamonix to begin our ascent. Sunday evening sees us at our chosen hut.

Monday - we plan to attempt the summit if weather permits, staying either in a hut or in the valley.

Tuesday - This day is in hand in case of bad weather. The course will end on Tuesday afternoon.
