Aiguille du Tour, mythical summit of Chamonix valley

"L'Aiguille du Tour", 3540m, is one of the easiest summits of the Mont Blanc Massif for beginners to try their first experience in mountaineering.  You will be walking, hiking, glacier hiking, spending a night in a mountain refuge and even a little easy going rock climbing. All these experiences will help you acquaint yourself with professional mountaineering.

We will meet up the day before with your mountain guide to check on weather conditions and equipment.

Then crampons on and  ice school on the "Tour" glacier. Spend the night at the mountain refuge.                                                                       DAY 2 : Climb up the "Trient" glacier and then ascent of the "Aiguille du Tour" (3544m); then return to Chamonix valley.
