2 Days

Jun - Sep


Description

Join me in this amazing adventure and let's climb the Jungfrau (4158 m), and the Mönch (4107 m), in the Bernese Alps!

The Jungfrau is a fantastic climb of a glacier with an exposed end. It is covered with snow all year. The climb takes place on the Aletschgletscher, the largest glacier in Europe. We will enjoy spectacular views from the summit! The regular route is rated ZS or PD+II-, Ice 35-40 degrees.

On the first day, we will meet in Grindelwald. After a picturesque train ride up to the Jungfraujoch with breathtaking views of the Alps, we will climb the Mönch! We will spend the night in the Mönchsjoch refuge.

The following day, we will climb the Jungfrau! From the hut, we will start hiking to the Aletschgletscher, also called the "Sporn". We will ascend through a a rocky ridge to the "breakfast place". From there, we will only find snow to the top of the mountain.

Although the only really exposed sector starts at the Rottalsattel, but we will find iron belay poles every 50 metres. They will provide safety up and down. Once in the summit, we will enjoy a spectacular panoramic view! Then, we will start our down climb to Grindelwald.

It will take us about 4-5 hours to climb up. Also, about 4 hours to down climb to Jungfraujoch.

Price details

The first peak is a small, very alpine peak. It's good for your acclimatization but you should already be fit. It requires 4 hours of active attention, walking and climbing with a crampon, ice, or snow ridge. It is a summit for a real introduction to mountaineering. The altitude is 4110m.

The second peak is of greater magnitude. It requires around 7 hours of walking, a little less technical than the Mönch but it is a longer trip. The altitude is 4158m. We return to Jungfraujoch around midday. The additional costs for the round trip by train to the Jungfraujoch with half board for you and me are around 150. I take cash. You can find train prices on sbb.ch ( around $360) This summit is ideally done from mid-May to the end of September but it is still possible until the end of October if the conditions are good. This summit is done using skis from March to May. You must have your own equipment or rent it on-site.

See you in the mountains.

Mountain Guide

Ever since I was born in 1977, I was motivated by a force of freedom. As an adolescent I sought to plunge deep into myself; to know and find myself. I found an answer in the wide open spaces, deserts, journeys and bike rides across thousands of kilometers that nature offers.

Nature is a way to connect with oneself, others and the 'rest'. Sharing these amazing experiences makes them so deep that they defy the very mountains, as we vibrate with a real and powerful energy. Through flora and fauna, through plain and summit: nature teaches and shows us the way.

I live at Jura Neuchâtel. I am married and a father of two small children. I have also been responsible for mountaineering camp and have received a "J + S" recognition (Youth and Sports). I will happily guide you across these mountains.

My only comments would be that this isn’t a beginner’s course . Levels of fitness and equipment needed should be in initial advertising
