Description

Located in Switzerland about 25km from the international airport of Sion, Dent Blanche is one of the highest and most beautiful peaks in the Alps. With an altitude of 4357m, when you summit Dent Blanche the views are quite spectacular.

Dent Blanche peak is the culmination of 3 converging ridges and so the 360 degree vista provides stunning overviews of this geography and the ridges’ formations in several directions.

Split into two days, the first day I will take you up 1700m and then on the second day you will be able to summit the mountain passing through rock climbing passages and potentially snowy ridges. The descent will follow the ascent route closely.

This is a physically demanding trip that is not recommended for beginners. You will need experience of hiking in altitude, be prepared for hazardous weather conditions and fit enough to hike for between 8-10 hours a day.

If your ready for a challenge and want to ascend one of of the highest mountains in one of the most beautiful settings in the world then sign up now and i’ll be waiting to share this amazing adventure with you!

If you’ve got less time to spare in the Alps then join me on this fantastic one-day rock climb on Excalibur wall in Wendenstöcke, for an exciting and beautiful challenge.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1988. Thanks to my parents, I learned to live and love the mountains. Already at 16, at my hometown Ticino, I started practicing mountaineering and other activities with my friends. Creativity reigned in every tour we went on.

Later, I developed my ski mountaineering and climbing techniques at the Alpine Club (Lugano). In 2008, I moved to Switzerland to complete my studies. I got my Biology Degree (2011) in Basel and my Master's in Neuroscience (2013) in Zurich. Yet, my love for the mountain remained alive and strong all along. This helped me take the next step: my training as an Alpine Guide.

I like to take my guests on a variety of activities. I mainly focus on wild and little known spots, as well as in niche activities like traditional climbing, which is based on the use of natural protections alone. My personal favorites? Long-climbing and exploration ski-mountaineering. I also offer hikes on the wild Ticino mountains, Val Varzasca or Val Bavona. In the summer season, I recommend the High Way of the Verzasca for a long excursion, or a less crowded peak of the Bernese Alps, to enjoy nature away from the most popular spots.

Overall, respect for nature is central to all my activities on the mountain. I am a big believer in diving into nature fully, to achieve a boost of positive energy and well-being, and get to know the mountain through sports, nature and culture.
