Description

Within the blissful heights and atmosphere of the Swiss Alps, I would like to guide you to the summits of 2 great peaks, the Dent Blanche (4,357m) and the Zinalrothorn (4,221m).

Climbing in the Alps of Switzerland is a mesmerizing, unforgettable experience. Whether it’s the crisp breeze brushing against your face, or the sensational views of the valleys below, the memories you will gather in this magnificent range can be dizzying.

What makes this 5 day trip so wonderful is how accessible it is. While you do need to have some prior mountaineering experience to participate, and should be in excellent physical condition, the climbs are intermediate level. Hence making this a great trip for relatively experienced climbers who are looking to take that next step in their mountaineering careers.

The trip will begin with some valuable rock climbing and will provide you with proper acclimatization, along with some stunning views.

During the following days you will be climbing the Zinalrothorn and the Dent Blanche: thus giving you plenty of time to enjoy views of the Alps’ other giants, from the Matterhorn (4,478m) to Weisshorn (4,506m).

Do you want to climb two 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Swiss Alps? Then this 5 day adventure is for you. So send me a request, and let’s start climbing!

About the guide

guide profile img

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
