Highlights

 
     

    It will be an incredible 5-day guided trip in which I will help you climb the legendary Eiger Peak. Are you coming?

    This program is designed for people who want to experience the Oberland Massif. This massif is situated in the highest region of the canton of Bern, and includes areas like Lake Thun, Lake Brienz and the Bernese Alps.

    During this unique adventure, we’ll climb to the summit of the Eiger Mountain by way of a demanding, but incredible edge. Hence I recommend that all participants be in very good physical condition, as well as having some prior mountaineering experience.

    Climbing the Eiger summit is a great opportunity to learn or improve all aspects of mountaineering. Therefore, I have prepared this course in order for you to review and learn some important climbing techniques such as:

    • How to evolve in extended rope
    • How to ensure a second and a main rope
    • How to conduct a safe descent
    • How to correctly place all protections
    • How to climb lead

    At the bottom of this description you’ll find a sample itinerary of this 5-day mountaineering course. Please keep in mind that it’s only an example of the program. I can modify it at any time, depending on your level and the weather conditions.

    Finally, I would like to let you know that departures are upon request. We can depart on any Monday of every week from the beginning of July to the end of August.

    For further information, or if you want to book your spot, please fill out the form, and let’s conquer the Eiger Peak!

    If you are looking for more climbing adventures in Switzerland, I also offer a 5 day trip to the summit of the world renowned Cervin mountain, otherwise knows as the Matterhorn.
