Description

The Furka Pass connects central Switzerland to the east and the Valais canton to the west. It is surrounded by granite peaks that offer both impressive scenery and perfect peaks for alpine climbing training.

On the east side of the pass, there are several places to improve your skills in this activity, which is the main objective of this one-week program.

If you sign up, you will get the chance to learn how to properly manage rope handling and acquire a deeper knowledge in rope technology for every situation.

We will also review safety guidelines and still have time to climb nearby peaks such as Gross Bielenhorn (3210m), Chli Bielenhorn (2940m), Chli and Gross Furkahorn, Galengrat and more. In the evening, we will get some needed rest at the really pleasant Sidelen hut.

It is essential to have a good prior experience in climbing and be physically fit to join this program and to enjoy it to the fullest.

Are you ready to learn and practice alpine climbing? Book this trip now!

I also offer a 2-day climbing program on the West ridge of the Salbitschijen (2981m).

About the guide

I have been a guide for the past 19 years. The fascinating and unique impressions of the mountain world are what motivate me the most. I love introducing my guests to the different aspects of climbing and skiing and other activities up in the mountain.

I spend my winters between Disents/ Mustér, Andermatt and also all over the Alps, where freeriding and skitouring is the star activity. When spring begins, I like traveling to the north for Fjord and Fjell, Ski and Sail touring and also to the Caucasian mountains. Later, in the summer, I love going on multi pitch rock climbing, mainly in the Swiss Alps, Dolomites and Chamonix. A great part of my experience has also been on several 4,000m+ peaks in the Alps and some mountains all around the world.

My specialties as a guide include skiing, mountaneering in rock and ice, and challenging climbs in limestone and granite. I always work to adapt the different options to the goals and desires of my guests.

Another part of my job has to do with Swiss Mountain Guide education. For the past 8 years I have been teaching different courses to aspirant guides.

Safety is a core value for me. This is the key to returning back home with the certainty of having experienced one-of-a-kind and enriching holidays. I look forward to guiding you soon, whether it is climbing, skiing or mountaineering.
