Chamonix Mountain Guide

Chamonix Technical Alpinism – Rock


A progressive three days climbing around Chamonix focusing on efficient movement on rock. We aim to climb the long AD "normal route" on the Aiguille du Peigne, a fine peak above the main Chamonix valley.

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. Aiguille de Peigne "normal route". This rocky peak above the mid-station of the Aiguille du Midi presents a variety of mountaineering and climbing challenges including both scrambling and pitched climbing. You will climb in both boots and rock shoes. It is a long day and we enforce turn around times to ensure everyones safety.

  3. After yesterdays efforts we use the Aiguille du Midi or Helbronner lift to access some mixed terrain at altitude. It is a opportunity to get on some snow and ice and also to get more acclimatised if you're planning on a extension to this trip.

Price includes:

Guiding fees, logistics & travel within the Chamonix valley.

Price excludes:

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

This trip needs two climbers to run. For private guiding at a 1:1 ratio contact us for dates.

Matterhorn success yesterday for Hannah and Jussi. Massive congratulations to them and thanks to @gwh_guiding & @fedepatagon for guiding. Long day.

Posted @withrepost • @jussieverest Matterhorn (4478m) summit today! We climbed the Hornli ridge route. I'm so excited we did this and feel very humbled by this mountain and this experience. Steep, consistent climbing from the start. So beautiful route. AMAZING!

Escaped the unsettled weather around Chamonix for the last couple of days by heading south to Monte Viso.

Good team scenes working with Ally, Fed and Gareth - 2 ropes up the classic east arete and the rest of us up the normal route.

Monte Viso packs quite a punch - it’s a big old mountain and only just under the 4000m mark. We were around nine hours hut to hut and we were glad of the second night there.

Hannah and Jussi are now in position for the Matterhorn tomorrow, so best of luck to them (and to @gwh_guiding & @fedepatagon for the guiding 💪)

Alpine training course from the Albert Premier Refuge, descending from the Aiguille du Tour yesterday.

A good hut and a great place to be learning some alpine techniques. Lots of different terrain to play on.
