Description

Are you an advanced mountaineer looking to climb through the Swiss and French Alps? Then look no further; this 2-week mountaineering trip is just for you!

The Swiss and Chamonix mountains are home to a few of the hardest ridge and face routes in the Alps. And this advanced mountaineering course has been created for folks with a lot of prior alpine, rock climbing and winter mountaineering experience.

Based on weather conditions we will be able to climb technical and classical routes at an AD or D standard. These routes include: Breithorn Traverse, Dent du Géant and Rochefort Ridge, Dent Blanche, Weisshorn and Zinal Rothorn among others. In addition, we will be able to explore some training routes on the Arolla peaks and practice rock climbing in some of Switzerland’s best crags.

We will also check out the North Faces of the mountains, and climb snowy or icy routes such as the Tour Ronde, Pigne d’Arolla, Grand Combin, Nadelgrat or Rochefort traverses among others.

I ask that you be in great physical shape to do this trip. And please only request to participate if you are an advanced mountaineer. More still, this trip is only available during select dates.

So, request to book this trip if you are an advanced mountaineer looking for a guided tour of the Alps! And if you enjoy mountaineering, check out my 6-day private alpine trip in the Alps for 2.
