The Almagellerhütte or Almageller refuge is located in front of Saas Fee in the Valais at 2894 meters high. It is very well-known by mountaineers who want to tackle the Weissmies climbing traverse but less known among rock climbing enthusiasts.

Me and my team of IFMGA mountain guides we offer a 3-day climbing program to discover different climbing routes around the Almagellerhütte including some great ridge traverses like Dri Horlini, the Portjengrat and the Mittelrück ones.

You probably never heard about those names before but I can tell you that these climbing routes are really awesome and accessible in terms difficulty level (max 4C).

Below this description, you can find an example of a 3-day itinerary.  If you wish, we can even include into this program the climbing traverse of Weissmies.

I will take maximum 2 people with me on the rope. If there are more participants in your group, one or several other guides of our team will join us.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested about this program or if you need a guide for any other mountain project your would have in mind, during the summer or winter. It will be my pleasure to guide you and share with you my mountain guiding experience. 




Day 1: Hike up to the Almagellerhütte

Once at Almageller mountain hut and if needed, we can spend some time to review the basics of climbing (basic nodes, abseiling technics, roping technics…)

Day 2: Climbing traverse of Portjengrat

Night at the Almagellerhütte.

Day 3: Climbing traverse of DriHorlini

And back in the valley at the end of the day.

About the guide

guide profile img

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!
