Mountaineering

Technical scale: Mountaineering skills required for our expeditions, alpine tours and demanding trekking.
 
1 - easy
2 - quite difficult
3 - difficult
4 - very difficult
5 - extreme
 
Mountaineering is the underlying ability to climb any mountain. On classic expeditions, many exposed areas are secured.
 

1 - easy / simple

"Easy" on expedition already includes mountaineering in alpine terrain or on glaciers up to grad ZS/AD "quite difficult" according to alpine scale. Exposed areas and crevasses are fixed if possible. Basic knowledge in handling ice axe / crampons and rope is required.

2 - quite difficult

Route with extensive passages in the grad ZS/AD: Safe handling with an ice ax, crampons and rope are required. Exposed places or crevasses are fixed if possible or walked in rope team.

3 - difficult

Persistent suspended passages must be managed. These will be insured if possible. Mountaineering on the alpine scale S/D "difficult" with exposed climbing passages (up to IV. UIAA degree). Good use of crampons and rope is required, as well as safe climbing in combined terrain.
 

4 - very demanding

Exposed and demanding route. The difficulties range up to the alpine scale SS/TD "very difficult" and are mostly insured. Dealing with fixed rope and climbing clamps, increased demands on climbing technique, physical conditions and experience are required, as are all the demands of "difficult" mountaineering.
 

5 - extreme

Very demanding mountaineering, even without the possibilities of protection. The terrain will rarely exceed the alpine difficulty SS/TD, but can reach the requirements of the alpine scale AS/ES "extremely difficult". Above-average ability and a lot of experience in alpine mountaineering are expected.
 
Danger Warning: For safety reasons, your personal skills and sufficient experience are required for each expedition and ascent (specific description under Information / Requirements).

Stamina - Endurance

A mountain athlete needs endurance above any other specific fitness skill. Cardiovascular fitness is of course always subject to the movement (as climbing rocks or steep ice, you will not be able to transfer your triathlete or running fitness to mountains without being solid in the required mountaineering skills).

1 - Active Tour
Easy treks to EBC or on top of Kilimanjaro. You should be an active person.
 
2 - Sportive Tour
More demanding treks, simple climbs, like the climb of Elbrus. You should be a sportive person regularly exercising (at least 2-3x per week).
 
3 - Demanding Trek / Expedition
Very demanding treks like to the top of Aconcagua, or expeditions at the physical lower level like Ama Dablam. You should be an endurance athlete wit mountaineering experience. You should train endurance at least 3x/week.
 
4 - High Endurance - Expedition
To climb Everest (with oxygen-support) or some of the "easier" 8000m peaks you need a strong endurance. You should train specifically at least 4-5x per week.
 
5 - Very high Endurance - Expedition
Some of our special self-supported 8000m+ peak climbs as on Makalu, or to climb Everest (without oxygen-support) fit into this category. Your endurance should be near the level of a professional mountain athlete.

Xvent Chamonix - itinerary

Meeting point: Chamonix from 16:00

Day 1 (Friday): Meeting in Chamonix

Arrival from respective destination. In the evening we meet for dinner together (approx. 20:00) in Chamonix. Then we check the material for the next day and discuss topics about the expedition. A short talk by the expedition leader will round off the evening.

Day 2 (Saturday): Ascent to the mountains of Chamonix

One of the cable cars will take us to the "Haute Montange" (high mountains) - preferably to the Grand Montets or the Aig. de Midi. Then we climb and train together on a mountain tour. The overnight stay will be in one of the huts, in bivouac or tent.

Day 3 (Sunday): Tour, training - departure

In the morning we enjoy again the mountain world around Mont Blanc. Then the descent takes place, either by ski or by cable car. Extension program on request or return home in the afternoon.

*Due to weather conditions, the mountains around Mont Blanc may make this difficult or even impossible. In that case there is still enough space in and around Chamonix to create an interesting alternative program. In that case, more training content (theory as well as practice) would fill the weekend.

Mont Blanc Ascent

The Mont Blanc ascent following our expedition event is a good option. We will choose an ascent route that suits your level of performance. With your level of expedition participation, it should be possible to cross Mont Blanc du Tacul to Mont Maudit to the main summit. One level higher, the Kuffner ridge (as a single guided tour) is a good option. In winter the ascents must of course be strongly adapted to the current avalanche situation. The south-facing couloirs or ascents over the couloirs of Maudit offer very challenging ascents.
