Climb mount Mönch guided by Roger, IFMGA certified mountain guide. Easily reached from Jungfraujoch, this is a great option for a one-day alpine tour.
Looking for a memorable climbing experience in the Bernese Alps? Join me on the ascent to the east face of Mönch (4,107 m). Since it is easily reached from Jungfraujoch, this is a great option for a one-day alpine tour.
Mönch is at the heart of the famous trilogy formed by mounts Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The terrain is also fairly easy, with a few short steep sections. The route will be the normal route, South East Ridge. I recommend climbers to have at least an Intermediate level climbing experience.
First, to begin the program, I will meet you close by the Jungfraujoch at 8.40 am. After that, we will pursue our goal: the ascent to the east face of Mönch. I will guide you on a hike towards the Mönchsjoch hut, as we make our way along the south shoulder. I promise amazing views north of us. As we continue climbing towards the summit, we will go through gneiss rock and steep firns.
As soon as we reach Mönch summit (4,107 m), the view is awe-inspiring. Thanks to its particular location along the northern edge of the Alps, it gives way to an infinite picture of central Switzerland. Later, we will descend the same route.
A couple of days prior to the beginning of the tour, I will assess the weather conditions and inform you accordingly in case it is necessary to make any changes.
Finally, remember you will need strong mountain boots (to use crampons) and functional clothing. Also, be sure to pack lightly! Among the technical equipment you will need are: crampons, gaiters, harness and HMS carabiner, and an ice axe. I can provide rental equipment in case you need it.
8:40 am at the coffee bar at the Jungfraujoch.
I was born in Sörenberg. I owe my love for sports and nature to my father. Ever since I gave my first steps, it was clear that the mountain was my destiny. I received my first harness when I turned 14. What started as a hobby of mine later became my job and professional career – as well as my passion. Climbing for me is pure sentiment. It embodies a deep emotional confrontation with the mountain, life and one self.
I am an all-rounder alpinist, with experience in both ice and rock. When I was 17 years old, I suffered a climbing accident that left me in a wheelchair for some time. Since then, I climbed Eiger mount over 35 times. This mountain became my home and made me a stronger and more confident climber.
Mountaineering has also given me the opportunity of traveling around the globe. I enjoy climbing remote spots, unknown, untouched territory. Freeclimbing is an exceptional practice that I hope to spread as much as possible.
Yet, what is most special to me is sharing these experiences with climbing partners from all over the world. The bond that unites people up in the mountain is extremely special and intense. Fairness and sustainability are two core values to me. In the end, it all comes down to having a fun and joyful climbing experience. Will you join me?

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
