Description

Have you ever tried multi-pitch climbing in Switzerland? This is my proposal! I invite you to follow me on this 2-day adventure in the canton of Valais where we’ll explore the great Jegihorn and its many multi-pitch climbing routes!

Located in the southwestern part of the country and in the heart of the Alps, the Canton of Valais is one of Switzerland’s most famous regions. Moreover, the Jegihorn (3,206 m) is one of this area’s most classic climbing destinations. Surrounded by spectacular mountains like the Lagginhorn (4,010 m) and the Weissmies (4,017 m), we’ll enjoy the amazing views of the Valais giants while discovering its many multi-pitch climbing routes.

Our starting point will be in the charming municipality of Saas Grund. From there, we’ll ride on a cable car to Kreuzboden (840 m) and then, continue all the way up to the Weissmies Hut. Our first day will allow us to prepare for our real adventure that will take place on the following day.

During our second day, we’ll explore the south face of the Jeghihorn. We’ll choose the “Alpendurst” Route which is a popular moderate to difficult route that will take us all the way up to the summit.  Additionally, I recommend this trip to intermediate climbers only and bear in mind, that it’s essential to have a good fitness level. 

So, if you are ready to join me on this Jegihorn 2-day program, I will be happy to guide you and show you the spectacular Swiss Alps. Send your request!

Itinerary

Day 1: Meeting point in Saas Grund

Meeting point in Saas Grund. From there, we’ll ride on the cable car to the Kreuzboden and ascend to the Weissmies hut.

Depending on each participant’s level, we’ll decide which route to explore. I strongly recommend ascending through the Jeghihorn S-edge which will be a great way to start with our climbing program.

(difficulty from 4a to 7b)

Day 2: South Face of the Jeghihorn (3,206 m)

We’ll climb a route through the south face of the Jeghihorn (3,206m).

“Alpendurst” is probably the best known route of moderate difficulty (4b, 11 pitches) and leads directly to the summit. However, keep in mind that there are also other nice options. we’ll decide which route to explore togeather.

We’ll return at approx. 16 o’clock from Saas Grund.


About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1988. Thanks to my parents, I learned to live and love the mountains. Already at 16, at my hometown Ticino, I started practicing mountaineering and other activities with my friends. Creativity reigned in every tour we went on.

Later, I developed my ski mountaineering and climbing techniques at the Alpine Club (Lugano). In 2008, I moved to Switzerland to complete my studies. I got my Biology Degree (2011) in Basel and my Master's in Neuroscience (2013) in Zurich. Yet, my love for the mountain remained alive and strong all along. This helped me take the next step: my training as an Alpine Guide.

I like to take my guests on a variety of activities. I mainly focus on wild and little known spots, as well as in niche activities like traditional climbing, which is based on the use of natural protections alone. My personal favorites? Long-climbing and exploration ski-mountaineering. I also offer hikes on the wild Ticino mountains, Val Varzasca or Val Bavona. In the summer season, I recommend the High Way of the Verzasca for a long excursion, or a less crowded peak of the Bernese Alps, to enjoy nature away from the most popular spots.

Overall, respect for nature is central to all my activities on the mountain. I am a big believer in diving into nature fully, to achieve a boost of positive energy and well-being, and get to know the mountain through sports, nature and culture.
