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.

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!
