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.
