Join us for a unique Alpine challenge where you will be exploring secluded valleys and experiencing incredible scenery behind the Aiguilles Rouges mountain range of Chamonix. Included will be three days of walking in this stunning and quiet location, with two nights spent in a mountain refuge and two in a 5* luxury chalet where you will be able to relax in the hot tub and be wined and dined by the resident chef.

Day 1: Arrive in Chamonix, enjoy a 3-course meal in the chalet while discussing the upcoming challenge

Day 2: Depart Chamonix and begin the ascent past Mont Blanc via the tranquil valleys of Les Ayères towards Lac Pormenaz for a dip in the glacial lake. Then head to Refuge Möede Anterne for the night.

Day 3: Move on to Col d’Anterne to enjoy our lead guide’s favourite place in the Valley: the incredible scenery of Aiguilles Rouges and Les Fiz. Return to Refuge Möede Anterne for a meal and second night under the stars.

Day 4: Head off toward the Pointe Noire de Pormenaz and its sharp ridge before climbing to the Col du Brévent. Descend to Chamonix Valley for celebratory drinks and a well-earned dip in the hot tub!

Day 5: Depart from Chamonix and return home.

We are working with the world class team at CHX Challenge for this event who will not only give you a great challenge but ensure you make unforgettable memories - all while raising vital funds for Spinal Research.

Although no technical mountaineering experience is needed, a good level of fitness is required for the demanding routes, though CHX staff will be on hand to guide and provide support throughout.

For more information about the challenge please call Louise on 020 7653 8935 or email community@spinal-research.org

 

Everyone has their own mountains to climb. When you find yourself at the bottom, facing up at the seemingly impossible, don’t give up. It will all make sense when you see the view from the top.
