Partner for Mont Blanc - Summer 2018

by PellucidWombat » Wed Dec 13, 2017 1:36 am

I am going to be in Switzerland on a family trip in the summer of 2018, anywhere between mid-July to sometime in August. I am really hoping to be able to climb a little by coming early or staying late. I have always wanted to climb Mont Blanc & the Matterhorn .

Is anyone interested in meeting up there for such a climb?

For Mont Blanc, I am particularly interested in ascending the Italian Normal Route (II, PD+, cl. 3), although I am open to other suggestions from the French or Italian side.

I currently live in Salt Lake City, so if you want to climb together first, I can be open to meeting up for a climb in a variety of places in the Western U.S. between now and then.

Hey there PellucidWombat,
I am an american living here in Germany for the next year and a half. I don't have a ton of mountaineering experience as of now, but I have big plans for this summer to get what I need. Mont Blanc is definitely a must on my list. If you are still looking for partners count me in.

I'm going for Mount Blanc this summer and already started my training. Since for now I'm going solo, my plan is to take the Gouter route. I have little experience in high alpine mountains (I live in the Bavarian alps, but they're all little bit taller them 2000) and some training in winter climbing.
If you think i wouldn't be a set back to you, It would be nice to join.

Return to Europe
