We begin the program with an orientation day. After arrival in the town of Zermatt, you will meet your guide, who will review the upcoming program with you and check your equipment. You will spend the night at your accommodation in town.
We begin our 3 days of training with a climb of Pollux (4,092 meters). After our climb, we will spend the night in the Val d’Ayas Hut on the mountain (3,420 meters). Total time climbing/walking: approximately 5-6 hours.
We continue our training with a climb of Castor (4,223 meters). We return to the Val d’Ayas Hut where we will spend the night. Total time climbing/walking: approximately 5-6 hours.
Today, we will climb Breithorn, (4,164 meters) before we head back to the town of Zermatt via the Kleine Matterhorn. You will spend the night at your accommodation in town. Total time climbing/walking: approximately 5 hours.
Today, we begin the ascent of our final peak! We will ride for a bit on the Gornergrat railway. From there, we cross the Grenz glacier to the Monte Rosa Hut (2,795 meters), where we will spend the night before our early summit push. Total time climbing/walking: approximately 3 hours.
We begin in the early hours of the day (1 – 2 AM) for our climb to the summit of the highest peak in the Monte Rosa massif, and the highest mountain in Switzerland – Dufourspitze (4,634 meters). It will take us 6-7 hours of climbing/walking, but you will have accomplished a summit of a spectacular peak. Then, we descend back to the Monte Rosa hut for the night.
We spend our final day completing the descent back to town. Congratulations! You may spend the night at your hotel in Zermatt.

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.
I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.
Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!
Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!
