Description

The Allalinhorn is a popular peak among climbers, in part because it is one of the famous “82 4000ers” in the Alps. Still, it is fairly accessible. Actually, Allalinhorn is considered the “easiest” 4,000 meter peak in the Alps. Yet, as all Alpine climbs, it has several challenges to overcome. Join me this season as we aim for the summit!

This peak is usually one of the first 82 “4000ers” climbers go on in the Alps, together with Breithorn. Located close to the Saas Fee ski resort, its presence is impressive.

To begin our Normal Route ascent, on the North side, we will start off at the Mittelallalin top station of the Saas Fee ski facilities (3,450 m). This point is easy to reach from the Saas valley. The climb involves walking up on glaciated terrain, and doesn’t have rock climbing sections.

Once we reach the Allalinhorn summit (4,027 m / 13,211 ft), the views are fantastic! This peak is located in an ideal position in relation to its neighboring peaks. Some of the peaks we will observe from the top are:

  • Rimpfischhorn

  • Strahlhorn

  • Monte Rosa

  • Matterhorn

  • Weisshorn

  • Fletschhorn

  • Weissmies

  • and Mont Blanc Massif

The technical difficulty of this ascent is F+. Yet, it is still a high altitude traverse, and it includes glaciated terrain and crevasses, which demand following strict safety rules.

The total climbing time from Mittelallalin is around 2 hours. A great program for an enjoyable day in the Alps. I look forward to guiding you on this rewarding Alpine experience soon.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
