An excellent physical and mental condition is an advantage.
Whoever dreams of climbing the mighty couloirs of the Mont-Blanc range should come to this intense week. North faces mixed and ice climbing make many people drool. It is a very serious field, a good combination of resistance, experience and determination. Ice Prestige guarantees real adventure!
With Chamonix as a base camp, we will climb in the Mont-Blanc range, and climb legendary couloirs, adapted to the level of the participants. We will use the cable cars in order to get to the base of the walls more easily.
You will be roped up with very experienced guides, who feel at home on this type of verticals.
We will begin this week with the Goulotte Chéré on Mont-Blanc du Tacul, or the Ravanel-Frendo couloirs on the Aiguille Verte. After getting a sense of the level and conditions, we will have several options, including the Gabarrou, Modica-Noury or even Supercouloir on the Tacul.
Whenever possible, we will do the approaches on skis or snowshoes, and sleep in the Cosmiques hut. Some nights will be spent in Chamonix valley, in a comfortable guest house la Prairie or the beautiful Gare des Glaciers of our friend René Robert.
Excellent condition and determination, as well as good gear (sharp ice axes and crampons) are necessary for this trip.
