Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc

June - September The Highest peak in the Alps at 15,780ft (4810m). Climbing Mont Blanc is the goal of many climbers and is still a massive challenge requiring solid mountaineering skills, good fitness, stamina and acclimatization. The climb of Mont Blanc includes a big summit day where you will travel over everything from scrambling over steep rocky terrain to cramponing across exposed snow ridges at high altitude. We offer 6 to 8 day Mont Blanc programs.

Matterhorn

Matterhorn

June - September The most iconic mountain in the Alps. Nearly everyone has seen an image of the Matterhorn at some point in time. The stunning nature of this mountain draws climbers from all over the world. An ascent of the Matterhorn is very difficult. It requires solid and efficient scrambling skills on terrain up to 5.6, secure cramponing skills and excellent fitness. We normally recommend a checkout climb before attempting the Matterhorn due to the serious nature of this classic route.

Eiger

Eiger

An ascent of the Mittellegi Ridge and a descent of the South ridge make for an incredible traverse of this iconic mountain. Solid mountaineering skills and fitness are required.

Best of the Alps

Best of the Alps

May - September This is the trip that most of our clients come back for year after year. We start in Chamonix, which is in the center of the Alps and then we go and climb the peaks and routes in the best conditions with the best weather. The itinerary varies every year, but always results in lots of great climbs.

Via Ferrata

Via Ferrata

Via Ferratas are routes that are equipped with metal ladder rungs and wooden or cable bridges that run through canyons or up cliffs in the Alps. They provide a great opportunity for people to access incredible terrain with little experience or risk. It is much easier than rock climbing, but still gives you the exposure of the high cliffs. The canyon via ferrets are also super fun with long zip-lines, tyrolean traverses, and rope swings.
