Entreves Traverse

Chamonix High Altitude Technical Alpinism

Description:

A progressive three days culminating in an ascent of the Dent du Geant, the classic 4000m peak. These three days are ideal preparation and acclimatisation for higher peaks such as the Matterhorn and Eiger.

Required experience:

You should have completed some PD+ climbing routes and be happy on mixed and rocky terrain up to grade III (UK VDiff/Severe)

Example itinerary

  1. Climbing in the Aiguille Rouge we get some good mileage done in big boots and practicing relevant techniques such as abseiling, lowering and different belay techniques. Night in Chamonix.

  2. We drive through the tunnel to Italy and use the SkyWay lift. After dropping some equipment at the Torino refuge we climb the traverse of the Entreves and then spend the night at the hut.

  3. Up early for an ascent of the Dent du Geant, the classic 4000m peak. This is a long and exciting day climbing one of the best mountains in the area. If the weather or conditions are not suitable then we have plenty of backup options, always keeping our plan flexible.

Guiding fees, travel within the Chamonix valley and one night at the Torino refuge half board.

Price excludes:

Lift passes, Chamonix accommodation, equipment rental, insurance, flights and any other expenses not listed above.

Back home after a pretty fantastic six day hut to hut ski tour in the southern alps.

Blue skies, powder and plenty of safe fresh tracks. Lots of opportunity to “earn your turns” - we clocked around 7000m of ascent over the week, despite some bad weather at the start.

Heads down into the wind...
In the southern French alps for a weeks hut to hut ski tour.

Weather definitely sub par today, but we had a good adventure looping up one valley, over the col and down to the hut.
