Additionnal information:

-In review of the stable weather conditions over the last few years at this period, which are favorable for mountaineering and generally, would give a high success rate.

-Over night stays in unguarded refuges (equipped with bed and blankets) where the guide will be your chef..  the price to pay!!!

 

To optimise the chances of success, there are several conditions to be considered:-

- favorable weather conditions

-good physical condition of participant

-programme flexibility (The programme presented is the one we will follow if it remains to be the most favorable to the company's success)

-Having a guide for 2 offers a maximum of flexibility which greatly increases the chances of reaching the summit

-Climbing the Mont Blanc requires a good physical condition with practising an endurance sport, such as running or cycling.

If, however, it is not possible to climb the Mont Blanc during this 5 day training course, we will endeavour to climb an alternative 4000m peak and will refund the difference.

- Rencontre la veille pour faire le point sur le matériel ainsi que sur le programme envisagé
