Climbing Pollux

Explore-share.com helps you book your next Mountain Climbing trip in Pollux.

The Pollux, rising to 4092 meters, is a peak of the Pennine Alps located between the Aosta Valley in Italy and the Valais in Switzerland. It is part of the Monte Rosa massif, and its twin peak is Castor. The ascent of Pollux is not too technical compared with other 4000ers in the region. Of course you need some experience, but it is a doable challenge for less than expert mountaineers. A 2-day ascent will involve spending the night at one of the classic huts. Alternatively, you can go for the 1-day ascent using the lift of the Klein Matterhorn. This ascent can be only one of the many adventures on a longer mountaineering trip! Explore-Share only promotes mountain trips led by certified guides.

Mountaineering in the Alps with a guide

Alberto is the best guide I ever had (and I did mountaineering with quite a few, to say the least). With him, I feel confident to go to the best place I can reach, do more than I thought I would be able to do, always with security.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

During the summer 2016, Andrea guided us on Punta Castore in the Monte Rosa range from where we could enjoy breathtaking views on Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso. This adventure allowed us to discover the beautiful region of the Aosta Valley but also to share an amazing human adventure with a mountain guide who very well transmit his passion, the typical local kindness and the mountain values. We already booked Andrea for some future adventures !

Mountaineering in the Alps with a guide

Nous sommes partis pendant 2 jours sur le massif du Mont Blanc. Elis nous a emmené sur la jolie grande voie Genépi. Superbe journée avec un guide sympa, ouvert, intéressant et qui sait ce qu’il fait ! Pour le deuxième jour, nous voulions aller sur la glace. Malgré que la période n’y soit pas propice, Elis nous a guidé à travers pierres et neige pour nous apprendre les techniques de piolets de traction, de crampons techniques, de broches à glace et de rappel sur ABALAKOV. Elis s’est débrouillé pour faire ce que l’on voulait malgré les conditions pas évidentes, dans un esprit de partage et de bonne humeur. Il nous a communiqué sa passion pour sa région, ses connaissances et sa technique et nous laisse un excellent souvenir ! Pour nous, c’est sûr : on restera en contact.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

Andrea guided a bunch of four of us during three days on the Monte Rosa massif during which we made it to the ridge of the Breithorn and the top of the Castor, both 4000+. All went fine and we had a fantastic experience, turning crevasses and seracs and riding the ridges. Andrea is still quite young but calm and mature in his discernment. He inspires confidence, which is the most important guide quality to me. Furthermore he's a really good companion. I'd definitely recommend him.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

We had an incredible time with Andrea on Mont Rosa, he knows the mountain by hearth and has a wealth of experiences. It was incredibly fun with the right amount of challenge to be with him on the mountain. Would certainly recommend him and do it again.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

Climbing the Castore and the Liskamm'Nose with Andrea has been a fantastic experience. Andrea is a skillful, friendly and knowledgeable guide. In addition to the spectacular traverse he offered us, he brought us to two very nice refuges (Mezzalama and Quintino Sella) where we spent a great time all together too. The traverse was full of speechless views, with a few tricky parts (sharp ridges, steep slopes, crevasses to avoid,...). I'm grateful to Andrea for having offered us the opportunity to achieve this challenge. I strongly recommend mountaineers to be guided by him.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

Andrea knows how to share his passion! He is a great guide, dynamic and very professional. He guided us to Castor Peak and Liskamm's Nose through a three days expedition. The landscapes and views up there are breathtaking.
