5 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug




  • Climb to no less than 8 incredible summits in the Alps.
  • Enjoy different views from each summit.
  • Spend 3 nights in a mountain hut and 1 night in a scenic bivouac.


On this magnificent 5 day adventure, I would like to take you to the summits of no less than 8 incredible peaks in the Alps. Beginning in Courmayeur, we will embark on the incredible Grande Jorasses crossing. Along the way, you will reach the aforementioned 8 summits, all of which are part of the 82, 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Alps.

The summits you will be reaching on this trip include the Dent du Geant (4,013m), the Aiguille Rochefort (4,001m), the Dome de Rochefort (4,015m), Pointe Elena (4,045m), Pointe Marguerite (4,065m), Pointe Cruz (4,110m), Pointe Whymper (4,184m) and Pointe Walker (4,208m). Each one of these summits offers its own set of unique views and climbing experience.

During this 5 day trip, you will also be spending your nights in different, high altitude mountain huts. Those huts include the Turin hut (3,371m) and the Boccalette hut (2,804m). You will also get to spend a night in the thrilling and scenic Canzio bivouac (3,825m).

Throughout this trip, you will be ascending between 750 and 950 meters. As a result, you should be in good physical condition. Also, because of the variety of summits we will be climbing to, you should be an experienced climber as well. The program is available from mid-June to early August.

Climbing to 8 different summits in the Alps on a single trip is an incredible experience.  And on this 5 day adventure that is exactly what you will get to do. To join me, please send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Are you looking for a real climbing challenge? Then join me on this 5 day trip that will take you to 4 heard to reach summits in the Alps, based out of the Couvercle hut.

About the guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.
