Discover alpinism ! Beginner mountaineering course

You like walking in mountains and you are stimulated by the mountains covered with glaciers you can glimpse from time to time ? Try it ! Alpinism is not reserved to crazy high-level sports-men. If you can walk quietly for about 6 hours, you can put on some crampons and reach the peaks of your dreams !

I offer you beginner mountaineering courses that consist in three steps : the 1st day, a walk to the refuge and a parctice with crampon and ice-axe on the nearby glacier. The 2nd day, a walk on an easy glacier reach a saddle or a small peak. The 3rd day, the climb of a slightly higher summit, still technically easy. Here are some examples :

Parc National des Ecrins :

Day 1 : way up to the refuge of Glacier Blanc and practice on the Glacier Blanc
Day 2 : ascent of the Pic du Glacier d'Arsine (3346 m), night at the refuge of Écrins (3175 m)
Day 3 : ascent of the Roche Faurio (3730 m) and way down to the valley

Mont Blanc Range :
