First 3 days to train and get ready for the ascent
The normal and easiest route to ascent.
2 chances to get to the top (days 5 and 6)
The aim of this fantastic one week mountaineering holiday is to climb Mont Blanc; the summit, at 4809m is the highest point in Western Europe. With three wonderful days in the high mountains to acclimatise, and allowing three full days for the ascent of Mont Blanc with two days for the summit itself, this one week adventure gives everyone an excellent chance of reaching the roof of Europe. The acclimatisation days are spent traversing from the Albert Premier hut to the Cabane du Trient hut, spending time on glacier skills along the way and taking in the famous Fenêtre de Saleina and the impressive high landscape of the Col du Tour. The summit of Mont Blanc is reached via the 'Normal Route', from the Tete Rousse and then the new Gouter Hut. The summit day is a long one, but the reward .... you are now the highest point around, with the most awesome views of the surrounding mountain ranges, there will be no doubt that it was worth it.
