Day 0 - Arrive in Chamonix. Meet the guide at around 6:30pm in your hotel for a briefing. Your guide will discuss options with you and together you will lock down a suitable programme. Hotel night.
Day 1 - After organising last minute kit hire, you will take a lift into the high alpine regions for the day to climb peaks; work on technique and promote acclimatisation. This is a good time and place to sort out minor problems with equipment or technique before venturing into the larger mountain setting. Typical ascents would be Aiguille de l’Index, Petite Verte, or similar. Descend to the valley. Hotel night.
Day 2 - You will again ascend one of the many lifts and potentially climb a peak or focus on technique. Typical areas we may visit would be accessed by the Aiguille du Midi or Helbronner lifts. Whatever the activity these two days will greatly enhance your adaptation to altitude.
If you are going on to make a 1:1 ascent during the upcoming week your guide may organise a move to a mountain hut the following night. This will accelerate your program and give you more time to achieve the ascent and then focus on other peaks or technical skills depending on your desire.
On this night you return to Chamonix for day 0 of your planned Ascent or Course program. Hotel night.
Please note: Itinerary may change if conditions are more suitable in another region or factors such as weather or lift service precludes access into this region. In some cases this may be an additional expense to you.
