Description

Definitely 2 of the most stunning peaks in the Swiss Alps, near Zermatt, the Obergabelhorn (4,063m) and Zinalrothorn (4,221m) are amazing mountains to climb. They also happen to be 2 of the 82, 4000 meter plus peaks spread throughout the Alps. And on this 4 day adventure, I would like to guide you to each of these peaks’ summits.

Our trip will begin in Zermatt. From there, we will make our way up to Arbenbiwak, where we will spend the night. After that, for the next 2 days, you will get to reach the summits of Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn. And at the end of each of those 2 days, you will get to relax and rest in the comfortable Rothornhutte (3,197m). Finally, on the last day of the trip, we will descend from the hut back to Zermatt.

This trip is designed for experienced climbers, as the difficulty level of this trip is at a UIAA 4. And because we will be trekking and climbing for approximately 10 hours per day, and ascending between 1,000 and 1,600 meters per day, you should be in good physical condition as well.

Great views and a thrilling experience await you on this 4 day expedition. If you would like to join me on this trip that will take you to the summits of the Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn, just send me a request. I know you’ll have an incredible experience that you will never forget.

I also offer a 5 day triple summit trip in Valais that will take you to the top of three amazing mountains: Weisshorn, Bishorn and the Dent Blanche.
