Highlights

 
  • Reach the top of Mount Dom in the Pennine Alps.

  • Gaze at the amazing views from the top.

 

I invite you to come with me for this 2-day guided ascent of Mount Dom (4545m) in the Pennine Alps. It is the highest mountain located 100% in Switzerland and the 3rd tallest peak of the Alps.

Dom is part of the Mischabel group, it is located between Mounts Täschhorn and Lenzspitze.

Climbing Dom is technically not difficult but it is physically challenging. The total vertical gain is 3100 meters.

The starting point is in the village of Randa and from there we will go up to the Domhütte (2940 m) at the bottom of the Festigletscher glacier. On the first day, the ascent to the refuge is quite varied. We will first walk through the forest, then on alpine grassland, rocky terrain and finally on the glacier.

The summit of Dom will be reached on day 2. The final ascent should take us 6 to 7 hours. The terrain will consist of rocks, moraine and glacier. Once at the top, the breathtaking view proves worth the effort. The landscape up there is really amazing.

We will descend back to Randa the same way we climbed up.

In order to maximize our chances to reach the summit, you should have very good physical fitness and have previous mountaineering experience.

Dom can be climbed walking or skiing.

I invite you to contact me if you are looking for a local mountain guide to climb Dom. It will be my great pleasure to bring you up there and share with you a great mountaineering adventure. You’ll be climbing with me or with another IFMGA mountain guide from the team I belong to.

In Switzerland, I also offer a freeride skiing program in Verbier. Check it out!

About the Guide

 
 

Certified UIAGM Mountain Guide
A childhood spent skiing, some years being part of the Swiss ski-alpinism team, a few summers going to summits, an expedition in Bolivia to the Royale Range in 2006… that was enough to give me the desire for living my passion!!
Over the years, some trips have been added to my road book, South America and China, between others.
Mountain Guide since 2013, I have one motto: maximum pleasure with the maximum safety. I am working now with some friends guides: Raphael, Christian and Jean Luc, who is mountain leader. So if you are interested in puffing the powder, climbing the most beautiful lines or runing through the most beautiful edges, do not hesitate. Contact me and I will organise it!!! Also if you want to make a trip or an expedition abroad!!
