The Salbitschijen (2981m) is a granite jewel located in the center of the Swiss Alps, crowning the adorable town of Göschenen. In particular, its West ridge is one of the favorite destinations for alpine climbers.

It has more than 25 pitches on solid and steep granite rock, that can be completed by high skilled climbers in one day. It has 5 big pointy towers, and the difficult pitches are reached at nearly the end of the route. It is a challenging but rewarding experience, if you are guided by a professional who can keep you safe all along.

I invite you to a 2-day ascent that will start in Göschenen. Then, we will climb until we reach the Salbit hut, a comfortable accommodation where we could review safety issues and update our speed climbing skills. We will spend the night there and prepare for the next day, when we will climb the West ridge of the Salbitschijen, at 2981 m. Afterwards, we will descend and return.

It is essential knowing that this itinerary is designed for advanced climbers with experience in multi-pitch routes and excellent physical conditions.

If you think you qualify, please sign up! I am waiting for your request.

Mountain Guide

I have been a guide for the past 19 years. The fascinating and unique impressions of the mountain world are what motivate me the most. I love introducing my guests to the different aspects of climbing and skiing and other activities up in the mountain.

I spend my winters between Disents/ Mustér, Andermatt and also all over the Alps, where freeriding and skitouring is the star activity. When spring begins, I like traveling to the north for Fjord and Fjell, Ski and Sail touring and also to the Caucasian mountains. Later, in the summer, I love going on multi pitch rock climbing, mainly in the Swiss Alps, Dolomites and Chamonix. A great part of my experience has also been on several 4,000m+ peaks in the Alps and some mountains all around the world.

My specialties as a guide include skiing, mountaneering in rock and ice, and challenging climbs in limestone and granite. I always work to adapt the different options to the goals and desires of my guests.

Another part of my job has to do with Swiss Mountain Guide education. For the past 8 years I have been teaching different courses to aspirant guides.

Safety is a core value for me. This is the key to returning back home with the certainty of having experienced one-of-a-kind and enriching holidays. I look forward to guiding you soon, whether it is climbing, skiing or mountaineering.
