The Monte Rosa massif in the Swiss Alps has an incredible collection of peaks. And for 6 days, I would like to guide you to no less than 13 incredible summits. Each summit offers its own experience and set of views of the Alps. Moreover, all of these summits are part of the 82, 4000 meter plus summits in the Alps.

Beginning in Zermatt, our expedition will begin. Every day will see you venturing to different summits. The list of summits you will get to visit during this trip include Northrend (4609m), the Zumstein peak (4563m), the Signal group (4553m), the Liskamm east summit (4533m) and west summit (4479m). You will also climb to the summit of Castor (4223m), the Breithorn West summit (4164m) and Central Summit (4156m), the Western Breithorn twin (4139m), the Eastern Breithorn twin (4106m), Pollux (4092m), the Roccia Nera (4075m) and Dufourspitze (4,634m).

Along with the long list of summits you will get to climb to, you will also be staying in different mountains huts as well, including the highest mountain hut in the Alps: the famous Margherita hut (4,559m). All of the huts offer a comfortable place to rest and relax, and also will give you even more great views of the Monte Rosa massif and the Alps.

We will be exploring the quiet side of the Monte Rosa massif during this trip. However, despite the lack of crowds, the climbs are still challenging. As a result you should have prior climbing experience. And because we will be climbing for approximately 8 hours a day, ascending approximately 1,400 meters per day, you should also be in good physical condition.

If you would like to explore the amazing Monte Rosa massif, this is the trip for you. To join me on this 1:1 adventure, just send me a request.

I also offer a 5 day trip in Valais where you can climb 3 summits: Weisshorn, Dent Blanche and Bishorn.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.
