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