Description

Get ready to climb the famous Jungfrau, the highest summit of the Eiger-Jungfrau-Mönch trilogy. Right at the heart of the Bernese Alps, this 4,158m summit will take your breath away. Join me on a 2-day mountaineering adventure.

First of all, I will meet you at the coffee bar at Jungfraujoch. Next, I will guide you on a hike towards the Mönchsjoch hut (3,650 m). As we make our way there, we will be able to observe the planned route for our next day, summit day.

On Day 2, we will start by hiking down pass the Jungfrauhoch, to make our way up to the Bergschrund. After that, we will arrive at the Rottalsattel. Once we make it to the South Ridge, over the Bergschrund, we will aim for the Jungfrau summit (4,158 m).

The terrain along this guided ascent is moderately steep, with short easy climbs along the ridge. Some sections will probably include ice. I recommend climbers to have some experience with ice-axe and crampons prior to this program.

Safety always comes first. This is why three or two days before the tour begins I will assess the snow and general weather conditions and inform you of any changes, should that be necessary.

Remember to pack lightly, use functional clothing and sturdy mountaineering boots. Now, get ready for an unforgettable alpine experience. The technical equipment you will need includes crampons, boots, gaiters, ice axe harness and HMS carabiner. If you need help with rental equipment, let me know.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Sörenberg. I owe my love for sports and nature to my father. Ever since I gave my first steps, it was clear that the mountain was my destiny. I received my first harness when I turned 14. What started as a hobby of mine later became my job and professional career – as well as my passion. Climbing for me is pure sentiment. It embodies a deep emotional confrontation with the mountain, life and one self.

I am an all-rounder alpinist, with experience in both ice and rock. When I was 17 years old, I suffered a climbing accident that left me in a wheelchair for some time. Since then, I climbed Eiger mount over 35 times. This mountain became my home and made me a stronger and more confident climber.

Mountaineering has also given me the opportunity of traveling around the globe. I enjoy climbing remote spots, unknown, untouched territory. Freeclimbing is an exceptional practice that I hope to spread as much as possible.

Yet, what is most special to me is sharing these experiences with climbing partners from all over the world. The bond that unites people up in the mountain is extremely special and intense. Fairness and sustainability are two core values to me. In the end, it all comes down to having a fun and joyful climbing experience. Will you join me?
