Description

Towering above the village of Grindelwald and at 3,692 m (12,113 ft) above sea level, the Wetterhorn summit awaits you! Come with me on this 1-day ascent and discover the most incredible views of the Swiss Alps!

Formerly known as Hasle Jungfrau, the Wetterhorn is one of the three peaks on a mountain known as the Wetterhörner. Located in the Swiss canton of Bern, it’s one of the most often climbed summits in the Bernese Alps.

Our one day program will take us to climb on snow, ice and rock. Early in the morning, we’ll leave from the Grindelwald Village and go to the Gleckstein Hut, located at an altitude of 2,317 m ( 7,602 ft ). From there, we’ll continue through a unique  route all the way up to the top of the summit. During this ascent, we’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Eiger and the Schreckhorn group.

Keep in mind that this trip is for intermediate or advanced climbers. Therefore, you will need previous climbing experience and a good fitness level to join me on this 1-day adventure.

Luca

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1988. Thanks to my parents, I learned to live and love the mountains. Already at 16, at my hometown Ticino, I started practicing mountaineering and other activities with my friends. Creativity reigned in every tour we went on.

Later, I developed my ski mountaineering and climbing techniques at the Alpine Club (Lugano). In 2008, I moved to Switzerland to complete my studies. I got my Biology Degree (2011) in Basel and my Master's in Neuroscience (2013) in Zurich. Yet, my love for the mountain remained alive and strong all along. This helped me take the next step: my training as an Alpine Guide.

I like to take my guests on a variety of activities. I mainly focus on wild and little known spots, as well as in niche activities like traditional climbing, which is based on the use of natural protections alone. My personal favorites? Long-climbing and exploration ski-mountaineering. I also offer hikes on the wild Ticino mountains, Val Varzasca or Val Bavona. In the summer season, I recommend the High Way of the Verzasca for a long excursion, or a less crowded peak of the Bernese Alps, to enjoy nature away from the most popular spots.

Overall, respect for nature is central to all my activities on the mountain. I am a big believer in diving into nature fully, to achieve a boost of positive energy and well-being, and get to know the mountain through sports, nature and culture.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
