Description

Finhaut is a beautiful town in the Swiss Alps. As such, it is a great area for skiing in the winter, but there is summer fun to be had too! Mountaineering is of course an option, but so is rock climbing for the more adventurous! Of course, because Finhaut is less known than other regions in the Alps, getting around is easier with a guide. On these Finhaut summer sport climbing tours, I would like to show you some of the best places in the region for this exhilarating sport. 

There are many options to practice climbing in the Alps. Finhaut is very well located in this respect. It is close to the Mont Blanc range, and also to Emosson Dam and the Perrons de Vallorcine traverse. In all these spots we will find more or less challenging climbing opportunities. Options include riding a bike to go sport climbing, as well as climbing stunning 10+ pitches. 

The higher and more challenging climbs will predictably require more prior climbing experience. A good fitness level is also important to tackle this kind of challenge. If you are less experienced we can adapt the tour to suit your level. Of course, in all cases I will be there to guide you and ensure your safety.

Are you ready to try a fun and challenging sport climbing tour in the Alps? Then book your place now and join me this summer in Finhaut for an exhilarating climbing excursion in the sun!

Are you an experienced climber looking for a totally off the beaten path tour? Then join me on a unique midnight sun rock climbing experience in Lofoten, Norway!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in a small ski village in the Swiss Alps and was immersed in the climbing culture through my parents at a young age. After three years competing in the ice climbing world cup and after graduating from law school, I decided to pursue climbing professionally, both as a guide and as a professional alpinist.

My passion for everything relating to the mountains - alpine climbing, ice climbing, skiing, skimo races, rock climbing, etc. - has taken me all over the world, doing first ascents and repeated beautiful climbs in places such as Canada, Ethiopia, Norway, Jordan, Iceland, Antarctica, Morocco, Thailand and more. But some of my greatest climbs have been here in the Alps, climbing the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses and Drus, or Beyond Good and Evil in Chamonix. What I love most though is climbing big frozen waterfalls.

Through guiding, I get to share my love for the mountains, as well as my skills and knowledge with guests around the world, in the alpine, on ice, rock or on skis. What I love about my job in the Alps is that I get to speak so many different languages - English, French, Italian, German - as the mountains sit on or close to borders.

The mountains are my passion and have been my way of life for most of my life. It is a community I am proud to belong to. And on this journey, I have met my husband and fellow mountain guide, Adam. We love working together. We live in Finhaut - a small Swiss village right the French-Swiss border between Chamonix and Verbier - with our lovely daughter Olivia. We have access to beautiful climbing and ski touring right from our doorstep and are close to world class terrain in France, Switzerland and Italy in a matter of minutes!

When I am not guiding, I play for myself in the mountains, work on translations, blog and love to rediscover the wonders of the world through the eyes of my daughter.
