Highlights

 
     

    Grand Combin is the only summit of more than 4000 m between the Grandes Jorasses and the Dent-Blanche, which we can also climb. This is an iconic mountain of Bagnes Valley, which dominates all other peaks for miles around.

    Grand Combin offers an exceptional flora and fauna, a wild atmosphere ideal for nature lovers and a genuine hospitality during the trip.

    It’s less known than some four-thousanders in the Valais, and wrongly, mountaineers are less interested in it!

    It’s a mistake, because the edge of Meitin offers a good and varied itinerary between snow, rock and ice. Discover this wild climb, away from the crowds!

    The ascent takes about two days.

    I invite you to contact me if this adventure sounds interesting to you. I’d be glad to lead you there!

    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!

    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!

    We discovered a great and safe touring trip at back Montfort via a small ascent on the “Mont Calme” with our guide Yann. We had great powder and great fun and felt very safe thanks to the experience of our guide Yann. Do not hesitate to hire him!
