An ideal summit for a first experience in high altitude climbing

The stunning and sole Italian summit of over 4000m, Gran Paradisio (4061m) is renowned for its accessibility for beginners in mountaineering. This ascension in the Aosta Valley constitutes an excellent acclimatization to high altitudes and a good experience in the use of mountaineering gear before any Mont Blanc ascension.

DAY 1 : 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 2 : Early departure for the ascension of Gran Paradisio via the "Laveccio" Glacier (Approximately 5 hours).  Then descent into 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.
