Description

Are you on the look for your first rock climbing 4000er in the Alps? Or maybe you are already an experienced climber in search for new summits? Join me on this 2-day Lagginhorn ascent (4,010 m), for a memorable mountain experience. 

Lagginhorn is located in the Saas Valley (or Saastal), in the Swiss province of Wallis. Our Normal Route ascent starts off at Saas Grund (1,565 m). At 2,726 m we will find the Weissmies hut.

The next day we will aim for the summit (4,010 m). From the Weissmies hut the route is pretty straightforward, with Lagginhorn always in sight.

This is considered as an “easy” climb among the Alpine “82 4000ers”. It is certainly a technically affordable ascent. Yet, it is still demanding, as it involves glacier and snow segments, although no crevasses. The Lagginhorn climb is also sometimes pursued in preparation for more demanding ascents.

On this program, I will take groups of up to 2 climbers. Guests will need to know how to use crampons, and bring along boots suitable for crampons.

About the guide

guide profile img

Hello! I was born in Patagonia, Argentina, and started practicing mountaineering from a very young age. Today I live in the mecca of alpinism, Chamonix, France. I work as a full time mountain guide here in the Alps, in Patagonia and in any place I get the chance to go to.

Whether it is rock climbing in the sun, or ice and mixed routes in the cold north faces in the Alps, I do everything with passion. Glacier travels, icefalls climbing, freeride, ski touring... Luckily the mountain gives us many choices.

I invite you to join me in any of my trips and activities!
