Highlights

  • Rise to the heights of the Eastern Alps to King Ortler.
  • Enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery in Italy.
  • Climb the other giants in the region, such as Cevedale.

Description

Conquer the summit of Ortler, the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps, with its beautiful high-altitude views and rugged glaciers.

Soaring to 3,905 meters into the skies, this alpine giant is known to locals as King Ortler, which is home to a collection of climbing passages.

Before we attempt the summit of Ortler, we’ll first prepare by climbing Cevedale. Measuring at 3,769 meters, it is the highest mountain in the Italian province of Trentino.

The region around the king offers great opportunities to prepare for the big task. Tackling the summit of Cevedale acclimatizes us to the altitude and allows us some spectacular scenery.

Due to the level of difficulty for this 4-day ascent, potential participants are required to have very good physical fitness, as well as being technically competent with crampons.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the beautiful Eastern Alps to conquer its highest mountain, King Ortler.

About the guide

The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.
