This trip is for all who want to practice rock climbing safely. I offer a complete course around Zermatt, in southern Switzerland, to teach you the basic skills of this sport or to help you to become better. Join me!

Zermatt is in the German-speaking section of the canton of Valais. It is a mountain resort in the Swiss Alps with perfect terrain for outdoor adventures. The town lies below the famous Matterhorn peak, surrounded by amazing alpine landscapes.

On this day course we will explore the area and head up some stunning rock climbing spots. There are crags for all levels and styles: traditional and sport climbing, single pitch and multi pitch!

On the first day we will practice in a crag near Zermatt. Then, on the second day we will head up a rock climbing route in the impressive Riffelhorn (2,928m) where we can practice and improve what you have learned.

We will work on the following subjects:

  • Rope handling
  • Anchors usage
  • Belayng techniques
  • Climbing techniques
  • Rappelling
  • Top-Rope climbing
  • Lead climbing
  • Building stances

If you are a beginner you will get a solid rock climbing base, and if your are an intermediate or even a good climber, you will improve your techniques with me!

So, if you are up for this rock climbing course in Zermatt, please contact me! Let me show me the secrets of this amazing activity!

I also offer a lot of other activities in the area. You can take a look, for example, at my Easy day hike from Zermatt.
