Highlights

 
     

    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.

    About the Guide

     
     

    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!

    What People are Saying about Yann Decaillet

     

    Yann was a fantastic guide for the last 3 days in Verbier. He was flexible and really listened to what we wanted, which was fun and adventure but not too hard core. Our teenage children enjoyed the experience very much. We covered most of the resort and enjoyed some off-piste touring as well and we felt safe and informed the entire time.

    Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!
