Reach the top : 4000 m of altitude !

Climbing above 4000 meters is for many a huge achievement, in their mountaineering career and a reward for their continuous efforts in this field.

The Gran Paradisio with its 4061meters of altitude can be a goal during this practice training. The climb of this Aosta Valley summit can provide a very good first experience of high mountain racing. 

This 3 day training course will be adapted to your level of experience so as to offer you a progressive training course. 

Sample training schedule with the ascension of Gran Paradisio (4061m):

DAY 1 : Crossing of the "Vallée Blanche", initiation of a glacial hike between "Aiguille du Midi" and the "Helbronner" point on the Italian side and return back in the cable car. Spend the night in Chamonix. 
DAY 2 : Departure around 10h30 from Chamonix to reach the "Valsavarenche" in Italy via the Mont Blanc Tunnel (Approximately 1h30 drive). Climb up to the "Chabod" mountain refuge (2730m) at the bottom of the North face of Gran Paradisio.
DAY 3 : Early departure for the ascension of Gran Paradisio via the "Laveccio" Glacier (Approximately 5 hours).  Then descent in the valley via the "Victor Emmanuel" mountain refuge (2750m). 

The schedule may be modified depending on weather conditions and on the participants level of experience. If these factors are not to your advantage we may suggest to you another 4000m summit.
