Mont Blanc 2014 Partner

Postby KalebRoth » Wed Nov 20, 2013 8:12 pm

Looking for someone to climb Mont Blanc with next summer 2014. I have no experience in the alps, but after speaking with some different people I've been informed that training in the scottish mountains is a great start, so I've booked myself in for a course in february. The thing is, the guides are so expensive for a Mont Blanc ascent, I just can't be paying that much.
I'm looking to go in June/July to Chamonix and spend a week to 10 days there.
Help an aspiring mountaineer out?

Hi Kaleb,

I'm thinking about going this July as well as I had to cancel my plans last a couple of years unfortunately. I've left you a PM yesterday so we can have a chat about it.

Cheers,
Tomas

Hey Kaleb, I would be very interested in joining you on Mont Blanc next year.

Strangely enough, I am also based in Manchester and have booked myself on an introductory winter course like yourself. It would great to possibly join you. :)

Hi Speylock,

I've written to Kaleb as well a couple of days ago as I'm based in Aberdeen and I'm planning to go this summer as well as I had to cancel my plans earlier but still have all the prep done.

I would say, a group would be better so let me know if you want to have a chat about it! :-)

Cheers,
Tomas

Sounds great Tomas, I'm definitely interested. Perhaps we could get a group chat on skype etc to discuss further details?

Excellent! Hopefully Kaleb gets back to me again. I'll send you details in PM so we can get a Facebook Group or Skype going to share some details there.

Cheers,
Tomas

Hi guys.



I'll be in chamonix the last week of June for a week for the chamonix marathon but want to get a few climbs in before hand.

not sure if any of you are around at that time, but if you are then would be good to meet up.

Let me know.

Thanks
L

In all sincerity......you're an "aspiring mountaineer" who is going to charge up Blanc without a guide after taking a course? No offense intended as I'm trying to do you a favor......but you are the reason the mortality #'s on that mountain is so high. Please do yourself a favor and log a few seasons of climbing before hand. Or not.....it's your life, not mine.

I've always found just going out there and having a go but knowing your limits is a good way to learn. worked for me.
