Mont Blanc team climbs Monta Rosa

Hello,

Our Mont Blanc team traveled to Switzerland over the past couple days and made an ascent on the Monta Rosa. Conditions did not allow the team to reach the true summit. They turn around shortly below due to weather and conditions.

The group had a wonderful time over the past 7 days traveling thought the Alps. This team didn’t get to climb Mont Blanc, instead they got to climb in 3 different countries (Italy, France, and Switzerland). They got to enjoy the wonderful hut life of the alps and enjoyed good food along with wine.

Thanks for following our cybercast and will be in touch over the next couple days with more updates.

Team summit Dent d’Geant and Haute Route trek starts today

Bonjour from Chamonix, France!

Today was another beautiful in the Alps. Our Haute Route trek tarted today and departed Chamonix towards Zermatt. Over the next week they will be traversing the Alps spending nights in mountain huts. The Haute Route trek is an excellent adventure for trekkers looking to having amazing views and enjoy the luxury of the French and Swiss hut system.

Another team today climbed the famous Dent’ d’Geant (tooth of the giant). This amazing technical alpine peak that towers over 4000m is a perfect way to train for the Matterhorn. Today 3 climbers reached this summit. The team will be moving to Zermatt tomorrow and looking to make a summit attempt on the Matterhorn over the next couple days.

Thanks for following our cybercast and will be in touch over the next couple days.

I want to commend Jonathon for running a great program and hiring fun, knowledgeable and professional guides. Jonathon also went out of his way to guide me again on Monday. He had to change his schedule completely and I am in his debt. He didn’t have to do that and I am so grateful. I […]
