Mountaineering course information 1 to 7 days with a Chamonix Mont Blanc mountain guide

Mountaineering Courses: Ice, Snow and Rock Climbing
Mountaineering beginners course
You would like to go into the high mountains, but you do not feel confident because you don't know the necessary skills. Maybe you feel intimidated by all the different techniques one needs to master. In a week-long course with a guide, you can learn all these skills safely. Our guides give emphasis on keeping the teaching methods simple and clear so all course members finish the week with a base of mountaineering techniques which one needs to know, if you wish to become self-sufficient in the mountains.
Program : When the basic skills have been learnt, after two days of instruction on rock and ice climbing, you will be ready to tackle your first real climbs in the mountains. Taking into account your tastes, your climbing possibilities, the weather forecast and your guide's advice.
Ex : Arête des Cosmiques, Tour Ronde, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Aiguille du Tour...
Dates : 5 days. Every week from mid-june until the end of september.

3 days course
The short version of the beginner course.
Dates : Every week from mid-june until the end of september

Snow & ice course
You are especially drawn to snow and ice climbs. The early season appears to have especially good snow and ice conditions in the high mountains, be it either snow ridges, ice gullies or north faces. I'm keen to help you fulfil your ambitions. The beginner ice course is aimed to give maximum emphasis on confidence building and safety on mixed terrain.
Program : Ice and snow lessons, then climbs according to conditions at the time, your standard and your aspirations.
Exemples for beginners: Petite Verte, Tour Ronde, Tête Blanche, Traversée Dômes de Miage ...
Dates : 5 days. Every week from june until mid-july and from mid-august until the end of september.

Because of the conditions of the mountain, the level of the group and others, the guide could organize a different planing.
