Mountain Guide- Grindelwald, Interlaken-Oberhasli

I was born in Grindelwald in 1976, so the mountain has always been my home. I studied forestry after school, and it became my job for some time.
In 1999, I succeeded ascending the North Face of Mt Eiger for the first time. Over time, I took clients in this adventure, one of the most technical climbs in the Alps, several times.
I also went many times to America, to Yosemite, and of course to the Himalayas.
Since 2002, I have been traveling around the world as a professional guide. My passion is the mountains and I want to share it with you.
When you are in the mountains, it doesn't matter whether you are the fastest or the best, but if you can go back with a great experience.

Andreas Abegglen is an outstanding guide. He is a very friendly,very safe and knowledgeable guide. His enthusiasm and love for guiding makes it a joy to climb with him. You will not find a better guide to climb the Norwand of the Eiger with. He knows the Eiger,specifically the Heckmair route like the back of his hand. Just keep in mind that this route is for experienced mountain climbers only and you must be in top physical and mental condition!. That being said the weather and the conditions of the route dictate if and when you climb. Be prepared to spend some time in Grindelwald waiting for the weather to cooperate.
