Technical Mountaineering

France, Switzerland, Italy

Ice slopes, mixed climbing, hard moves on rock and long days all mixed into one is what technical mountaineering or alpinism is all about. We’d like to share the rope with you. Let us know about your alpine dreams! Lets make a plan!

Chamonix and its Mont Blanc range offer some of the best technical mountaineering to be found anywhere. With golden granite towers and faces split by plumb-line ice runnels, the terrain lends itself perfectly to technical alpine climbing.

The big draw-card in the Mont-Blanc range is the access to the mountains. One can take the cable cars up to the high alpine peaks and get straight into the alpine climbing. Brevent, Flegere, Grands Montets, Aiguille du Midi or the Skyway on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc tunnel give direct access to real alpine mountaineering.

We generally do advanced alpine climbing routes with people we’ve climbed with before-hand or done a good preparation with, so as to get to know one another.

Switzerland guarded the “last great problems” of the Alps in the golden age of mountaineering. Still today Swiss alpine climbing challenges all aspects of an accomplished alpinist.

If you are an experienced mountaineer and names like the Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, Matterhorn or Piz Badile get you excited, then this is for you.
