    This spring and summer, join me in the ascent of Grand Combin! I planned a 2-day ascent of this beautiful peak in the Pennine Alps, a demanding but highly rewarding adventure.

    The Grand Combin has four peaks: Combin de Grafeneire (4314m), Aiguille du Croissant (4320m), Combin de Valsorey (4184m) and Combin de la Tsessette (4141m).

    On the first day we ascend until the hut. And on the following day we reach the summit! Finally, we return to the valley.

    From April to June we can do the ascent with skis. Then, from July to October it’s an all mountaineering adventure.

    Why this trip in particular? I love guiding my clients here since:
    – It’s my home mountain
    – We have an incredible panorama from Monte Rosa to Mont Blanc
    – It’s a beautiful mountain!

    Looking for challenging ascent? Then please contact me to plan a departure! I also offer the option to guide you only on summit day. And if you are looking for the classic of classics, join me in the ascent of Matterhorn.

    About the Guide


    I am a mountain guide and ski instructor based in Verbier, Switzerland.
    During the summer, I enjoy very much bringing my friends and clients on the 4000 meters of the Alps and do some rock climbing in high altitude. During the winter and spring, I love going freeride skiing, ski touring and guide on the ice falls. I'll be happy to be your guide and share wonderful mountain experiences with you. Feel free to have a look at some of my programs and get in touch with me if you are interested by one of them.

    What People are Saying about -Guy Robert May


    I highly recommend Explore-Share company and my guide Guy Robert May. I had a great time scrambling the Hornli Ridge with Guy-Robert which was very professional and friendly. The weather was not prominent for already settle climbing day, still Guy-Robert managed to squeeze me in his busy calendar and guides me to the top on the other day. (!) He easily shared his knowledge and experiences, gave me a few tips, and inspired to come back to Switzerland to tackle similar routes. Lupe thank YOU very much for all your help in finding perfect guide and again, Guy-Robert - many thanks for fantastic experience!

    The explore site is clumsy. it needs work, certainly on the payments. Guy-Robert was very professional, skilled. Good English, very experienced. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to friends.

    Guide Guy-Robert May was absolutely excellent in the strict sense of being a mountain guide. He demonstrated outstanding knowledge of the route, safety procedures and technical aspects of the climb. However, I noted that Guy-Robert and the other local guides working with clients during my ascent seemed singularly interested in getting their work-day done quickly. I came to understand a few aspects behind their motivation. Firstly, I noted the guides don\'t want un-guided climbing groups to follow their route. Secondly, I learned that many of the guides have back to back bookings and need to return to the Hörnli Hut or Zermatt to meet their next clients at a certain time. Given that this is their profession, I understand the guides\' desire to move things along quickly. Unfortunately rather than being forthcoming, the guides attempted to justify their reasons for such speed solely under the pretense of safety. After 30 years of mountaineering throughout the world, I am keenly aware that speed equals safety in the mountains. However for many including myself, the joy of climbing includes more than just the physical challenge. Taking moments to enjoy being in the mountains can be just as important as reaching the summit. Simply pushing a client to move as fast as possible leaves little room for that enjoyment. On the Matterhorn like any climb there are positions of relative safety. The summit and Solvay Refuge specifically come to mind. I would have liked to see my guide provide for a more leisurely stop in these areas to afford me time to enjoy my surroundings. I would highly recommend Guide Guy-Robert May to anyone solely intent on conquering their intended Swiss summit. However, for those looking to enjoy their climbs, immerse themselves in their surroundings and indulge in the technical skills being used this type of booking may not be for you. I regret not having a critical conversation with my guide about his climbing strategy prior to finalizing my booking. I am very happy to have made the summit and give all of the credit to my guide. Be that as it may, I would not book another climb with him or Explore-Share without specific assurances regarding the intended climbing philosophy.
