The ascent of Le Grand Muveran between the cantons of Vaud and Valais in Switzerland, a 1-day climb with Yann or another local IFMGA guide of his team.

Not specified


1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Climbing Grand Muveran via the Saille edge. A guaranteed atmosphere for this 1908 route that has been completely updated by “Péponne” in 2000.

One of the most beautiful races of the right bank of the Rhone!

Grand Muveran, at an altitude of 3051m, is at the border of the Vaud and Valais cantons, between Pont de Nant and Ovronnaz. I propose to climb the Southwest edge leaving from Ovronnaz.

This race is rated “D+” (Difficile+: Hard+). It features some “aerial” climbing sections in compulsory 5a (some steps on 5c).

We leave from Saille (1510m) early in the morning to reach the Frête de Saille pass (2584m). Then the climb starts with around 10 short pitches. And the edge flattens before reaching the summit.

The Grand Muveran race lasts 6-8 hours. The positive altitude change is 1500m.

If this ascent sounds interesting, please contact me! I would love taking you up there. And if I am not available on the date you choose, another UIAGM guide from the team will join you.

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!

What people are saying about Yann Decaillet



December, 2019

Yann was a fantastic guide for the last 3 days in Verbier. He was flexible and really listened to what we wanted, which was fun and adventure but not too hard core. Our teenage children enjoyed the experience very much. We covered most of the resort and enjoyed some off-piste touring as well and we felt safe and informed the entire time.

Had a wonderful two days in fantastic weather. Yann was excellent, would highly recommend him.



April, 2017

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!

Just back from an amazing powder skiing day with Yann in the Valais. Loads of nice turns in the powder in a breathtaking landscape. Full of energy, Yann is very professional & safe and at the same time relaxed & fun. We had a great time!



March, 2017

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!



September, 2016

Après avoir du changer d'objectif initial à cause de la météo, nous étions parti pour le Zinalrothorn. Malheureusement, la roche était givrée et nous avons du faire demi-tour juste en dessous de l'épaule (4017m). Grâce à Yann qui connait bien la région, nous avons pu rattraper la journée en allant faire le sommet du Blanc de Moming par l'arrête E ou arrête du Blanc, très esthétique, bien raide et effilée. Malgré la déception due à la météo, nous avons malgré tout passer une journée incroyable en plein coeur de la Couronne Impériale. Je recommande vivement Yann et Jonathan. Vraiment sympas et très pros, on se sent en sécurité en toutes situations. Et leur connaissance du terrain permet d'envisager des alternatives de qualité. Merci a Explore-share.com de nous avoir mis en contact!

Once again it was a great experience and I was so happy to do it with Yann. It was only myself this time and we did a 3-day tour, came back on Saturday evening completely exhausted (which is a good sign!). This time he really challenged me and that's also what i was looking for. the first 4000m peak was climbed and it definitely taste to much more! The area is so impressive and spectacular!
