Highlights

 
     

    You have here a great opportunity to climb with a Swiss IFMGA mountain guide one of the trilogy of the 4000m of the Bernese Alps, Mönch (4107m). The 2 others being Eiger and the Jungfrau for which, my team and I, also organize guided ascent.

    Please be aware that you need to have some solid experience walking on crampons on steep (40-45°) and mixed terrain (rock and snow). 

    The journey starts in Grindelwald where we take the train to reach the Jungfraujoch station at 3454m. During the ride, we will have 2 stops (Eismeer and Eiger Nordwand) to take some time to enjoy the amazing views.

    I particularly enjoy summiting Mönch because:

    • The final ridge, before reaching the summit, is really spectacular;
    • The landscapes during the ascent are extremely beautiful, in the heart of the Bernese Alps, next to Eiger and Jungfrau;
    • It’s a 4000-meter peak;
    • It’s possible to climb it in one day thanks to the Jungfraujoch train who brings you at 3454 meters high.

    The program is as follow:

    After leaving the train at Jungfraujoch station, we will walk for one hour till the bottom of the south-east ridge. From there, we will put our crampons, our ice axe and rope us together. We will take then 3 hours to reach the summit passing by a beautiful ridge. The way down goes through the same way. During the summer, it’s possible to do a traverse, going up through the west ridge and going down through the south-east ridge.

    We can also leave for 2 days and climb Mt Jungfrau on day 2 staying at Mönchjochhütte on the first day.

    If you plan to come in the region and if you want to experience an amazing time up in the mountains, please get in touch with me and let’s plan together one or several days on and around these 3 amazing peaks of the Bernese Alps.

    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!

    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!
