I invite you to join me on this 2-day guided ascent of Eiger North Face vía Heckmair Route. Let's conquer together one of the most challenging walls in the Swiss Alps!

Located in the Bernese Alps, in Switzerland, the Eiger summit is located at 3,967 meters above sea level. This famous 1800-meter North Face is the highest wall in the Alps.

My proposal is to reach the top of the Eiger North Face vía Heckmair route in two days. This famous wall was first climbed by Andreas Heckmair in 1938. It will be my honor to safely guide you on this exciting and historical route.

We will spend the night in a bivouac. Keep in mind as well that only experienced climbers can attempt this climb. The ascent is physically demanding as well as highly challenging! All participants must be in great physical condition.

As a Swiss native mountain guide (who also speaks fluent English, German and Italian) with IFMGA certifications, I will ensure you fully profit from this experience.

So if you are ready for this 2-day guided ascent of the Eiger North Wall, request to book this trip!

Alternatively, if you wish to do another, less demanding climbing trip in Switzerland, you can also join me on the ascent of La Dent Blanche vía the normal route!

About the guide

I was born in Bramois on June 26th, 1983 and I have been a certified mountain guide since 2005. I grew up in a sportive and mountainous family, so since I was a child I have traveled the mountain just walking or skiing.

At the age of 12, I started participating, with my brother Didier, in a climbing camp. Therefore, discoveries and passions were connected, first climbing, then mountaineering and at lastly ice climbing.

After attending commerce school, the guide aspiring course done at the age of 19 and a tourism manager certificate, I started working in the guide profession, while keeping time to travel and enjoy my passion with my wife Noelie.

To improve my skills, I have also studied one year to get the Technician Paramedic certificate.
In 2011, I joined the rescuers-guides team at Air-Glaciers, at the same time I became the class leader in the training of Swiss guides.

Currently, still passionate and motivated, I am glad to be your companion in the most beautiful Alps routes or to discover new and remote regions.
