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.

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

Plenty of folk out enjoying the good conditions on the classics.

A weeks holiday away from the mountains now. Rest time before the @trofeomezzalama race at the end of the month.

A big couple of days on the wild Miage glacier taking advantage of the great spring ski touring conditions.

Up Mont Tondu and then today over the Miage after a night in the Conscrits refuge. Which served a vegetarian meal to the whole hut last night, meaning it’s now my favourite refuge. 🌱

Over 3500m of ascent and some very good snow on the way down.

Well the express Haute Route didn’t exactly go to Plan. A meter of fresh snow at altitude put paid to that.

We headed south and spent a great couple of days around the Mont Thabor area. Nice hut, quiet and loads of good skiing. Despite the cloud.
