Description

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.

About the guide

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?

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
