Seven Summits

 

Mountaineering. There is nothing quite like it.

Your seven summit journey starts with a day trip on a mole hill and finishes with a week long expedition to the highest point in Western Europe, the mighty Mont Blanc.  

With minimal fitness you can tackle summits one and two. By the time we reach Mont Blanc you will have all the skills and experience to consider yourself a seasoned mountaineer.

Take on 1, 2, 3 or all 7 summits.

The long snow-covered ridge of the Dômes de Miage is one of the most beautiful ridges of the Massif du Mont Blanc.

Arrive in the afternoon for mission briefing and kit check.  Set out for refuge de conscrits spending an afternoon on the glacier learning high alpine mountaineering skills.  Hike in crampons and axes along and over the summit ridge and back to basecamp for a good nights rest.

Mont Blanc - 4809m

The highest mountain in western europe is a character building endeavor.

Because Mont Blanc is a gruelling high altitude summit with scrambling and glacier travel, a one week program is needed to build stamina, aclimitise to the altitude and practice mountaineering skills.  The training days take on Gran Paradiso, the highest mountain in Italy at 4061m.
