ALONG THE REGULAR ROUTE
From the end of June to the end of September

Dent du Geant, high just 4013 meters, is one of the most famous peak of the Alps probably thanks to its elegant, aesthetic and slender shape.

This spire, located between Italy and France, offers a fun classical climbing in a great environment with breathtaking views of Aiguille de Rochefort and Grands Jorasses. The climb along the regular route is facilitated by many fixed ropes. In any case this climb must never be underestimated.

Climb to the top

From the Hut we’ ll start to walk along the easy Geant Glacier. The first part, until the place called “Gengiva”, is quite easy with classic difficulties. From “Gengiva” we’ ll start the main climbing. The first pitch is equipped with some fixed ropes; the second one is free and it is necessary to climb until the beginning of the “Burgener slabs” (the croux of the route). 5 to 6 pitches are necessary to reach our dream. From the top, the descent is on the south side with a sequence of rappels. From the Gengiva we’ll back on the same itinerary to P.ta Helbronner

Climb up and down 730m – 5/6 hours


More details


TECHNICAL INFO: Even if this itinerary is facilitated by fixed ropes, it must never be underestimated. The climb is exposed up to grade IV° and sometimes we can find some ice in the cracks or in the ledges because of its west exposition. The part leading to Gengiva is much more easy along snowy slopes up to 40° and a couple of rocky steps up to II°.

The accompaniment of two participants will be decided by the Guide in according to their experience, and technical skills.
