THE BRITISH MONT BLANC
TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE THIS SUMMER!
Ever fancied the challenge of climbing the height of Montt Blanc but feel it's a distant dream? Well, we have a UK based solution for you!
Achieve the 2438m of altitude gain by your own power and might whilst enjoying a spectacular break in Wales with likeminded adventurers and making friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
WHAT IS THE BRITISH MT BLANC?
The BMB challenge is set out over a weekend where you will gain the altitude height of climbing Mt Blanc via the popular Goûter Route.
On Mt Blanc, the Goûter route starts at Nid d’Aigle (alt 2372m) and pauses at The Goûter Refuge before continuing up to the summit of Mt Blanc (alt 4810m). That is a total of 2438m climbed over two days.
The British Mt Blanc Challenge will take you across six peaks with you achieving the same altitude gain over two days. This is also the equivalent of going up Snowdon three times (Pyg track).
DURATION Two days (Sat - Sun)
DATE May 16th - 17th 2020
INSTRUCTION Mountain Leaders ratio 10:1
COST £165.00 pp
DISTANCE 34 Kilometers
TIME HIKING 15hrs
TOTAL ASCENT 2434 METRES
HEALTH & FITNESS
The challenge is comparable to climbing Snowdon three times. However, this is not what you will be doing! You have to have a good base level of fitness. Hiking in the hills is the best training. An ability to hike for 10 hours on hilly terrain will do you fine. If you live in the city and are time poor, being able to run 5km is another benchmark. Please contact Be Fearsome if you wish to discuss further. You will need to complete a health questionnaire and be signed off for exercise by a doctor.
You will be sent a kit list of items required for this challenge. Although you do not need a lot of kit and all safety equipment will be carried by our Mountain Leaders, you will still need basic clothing, boots and a small backpack.
