Description

Join me on this great 2-day climb and reach the summit of the stunning Jungfrau (4158m). Together with Eiger an Mönch, Jungfrau forms the famous Bernese Alps trilogy, a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland, one of the most characteristic sights of the Swiss Alps.

We will start our climb from the beautiful alpine village of Grindelwald. After 5 to 7 hours of climbing we will reach the Mönchsjoch Hut, where we will spend the night. Next morning, we will start our ascent to the Jungfrau summit, climbing an amazing high altitude alpine route.

I will make sure you enjoy a safe climb every step of the way. Please note you need previous experience on the use of ice-axe and crampons and a good fitness level to join this ascent. We will have some sections of steep mixed climb, with snow and rock until the base of the summit tower.

Jungfrau it is not a highly difficult climb, although through the last section of the ascent, we will also face a steep ice and snow slope, leading us to the easy though quite airy summit ridge. Once at the summit, we will be rewarded with spectacular views over the surrounding mountains.

If you want to join me on this ascent to the summit of Jungfrau, just send me a request. Book your trip and let’s start planning this amazing climb in the Swiss Alps.

About the guide

I am originally from Tokoroa, New Zealand, but I'm now based in Interlaken, Switzerland. I started rock climbing at 19 years and moved on to alpine climbing two years later.

I began guiding in 2003 and am now a fully qualified IFMGA Climbing and Ski Guide. Apart from having extensive experience in New Zealand's Southern Alps, I also know the European Alps very well.

When guiding, I enjoy helping people achieve their dreams: whether it is climbing a summit or acquiring the skills to travel in the mountains. I like watching the dawn turn into a sunrise high on a summit when most people are still asleep and, when rock climbing, I enjoy unlocking a sequence that seemed impossible at first.

When not climbing, I like to ski long, steep, deep powder runs.

Tim was a great guide.  I had an amazing time and experienced some great routes.  We packed in a lot of different styles of climbing for a single day trip, and Tim did a wonderful job of selecting routes that would challenge me while keeping them obtainable and exciting.  He also took time to provide training in areas I have been working on.  He covered lead climbing techniques as well as proper safety measures.  I highly recommend Tim as a guide, and hope there’s a chance to climb with him in the future.  I expect I’ll be returning to Interlaken and will plan for more days of climbing when I do.
