Description

Do you dream of climbing the Eiger by the famous Mittellegi edge? Do you want to put all the odds on your side to achieve this goal? Then this 4-day course in Eiger is for you.

Climbing the Mönch (4107 m) offers a good field to get acclimatised to altitude and practice walking with crampons. Indeed, this is exactly the plan for our first two days together in the Bernese Alps.

You’ll find the complete itinerary below this description.

Of course it is possible to make the ascent in 2 days if you have experience and are prepared.

You will travel with me or with a UIAGM high mountain guide in my team.

If you wish to experience this beautiful ascent and train for it during two days, to maximize your chances of reaching the summit of the Eiger, send me a request! It will be a great mountaineering experience.

And speaking about mythical ascents, you can also check out this 4-day guided ascent to Matterhnorn.

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 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.

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!

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!

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!
