Mont Blanc Traverse - France - 7 Days

This program is for those strong fit ski mountaineers who are focused on the ascent of the highest mountain in western Europe.

As a warm up and to develop acclimatisation we will guide you on the west side of the mont blanc massif where it will be possible to summit other peaks. This section of the tour takes place in a very remote alpine region. The Mont Dolent is the point at which the borders of France, Italy and Switzerland meet.

Note that on this tour the night of day 4 is spent in a non-catered bivouak. Therefore you will need to carry sleeping bags in your pack.
