Mont Blanc Exped

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi all,

    I'm hoping to spin up a AT exped to climb Mont Blanc (and some smaller things around there to acclimitise), has anyone on here done it before and have any tips, or better still, a JSATFA that I can use as a template rather than starting afresh?

    Also, does anyone know specifically what instructors will be needed for this. I'm guessing Winter ML and Apline ML as a base line. I'm hoping no RCL as there are no technical climbs or KLL with no metalwork to get across.

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. Bring me a couple of pens back........

  3. Everything you need is on the Adventurous Training Group (Army) site on https://www.atga.mod.uk/ but this requires an ArmyNET account to get throught the Defence Gateway. This link http://www.armynet.mod.uk/ should get you to the Gateway log in page where you can register for an account. Good luck wuith the JSATFA, they are a pain to fill in.
     
  4. Did it with RE Mountaineering and Exploration Club back in 77/78 - which got me off Fire Strike duties !
    Can't remember much of the technical stuff but have a Bergan-full of dits from it.
    Thoroughly worthwhile week away.
