Description

Join me on the ascent of the Matterhorn via its North Face, one of the most challenging mountaineering adventures in the Alps!

The Matterhorn lies on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Also known as Monte Cervino, it is one of the most famous mountains in the Alps. This is due to its spectacular pyramidal shape. It is 4,478 meters high and it is the 5th highest summit of the Alps.

The North Face of Matterhorn consists of a 1,200-meter wall. It can only be
climbed by very specific conditions when the humid snow, smashed by the
wind against the face, sticks to the steep wall and keeps all the loose rock
together, also making progression much faster. On this program, we will tackle it together and descend through the north-eastern ridge (the Hörnli Ridge). Additionally, we will pass by the Solvay hut where we will spend our second night, just after reaching the summit.

For safety reasons, if you are interested to come with me, we will need to
meet each other beforehand and climb together. This will allow me to assess
your mountaineering experience, and you to trust me on the mountains.
Keep in mind that the North Faces of the Alps 4-day training program is
mandatory for climbing together the big faces of the Alps and it’s not included in the price. We might climb routes such as Aiguille Verte, Supercouloir du Tacul, or some gullies on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi, etc. On this, you will be challenged on everything you need to know to climb the Matterhorn safely and successfully!

If I had to sum up the main reasons why I like climbing the North Face of Matterhorn, I’d probably say:

  • It is one of the longest faces in the Alps;
  • It has a very long history and it is considered one of the most mythical routes in the Alps. You can read many stories about mountaineers who have climbed it;
  • I find the climbing line very elegant and logical. A beautiful ascent on a huge face;
  • I enjoy technical routes very much. Therefore, I like bringing my friends and clients and showing them the way.

Please send me a request if you are interested in climbing the North Face of Matterhorn. I’ll be glad to guide you there and allow you to live a unique mountaineering experience!

We can also go for other technical ascents like the North Face of Eiger or the ascent of Les Grandes Jorasses. If you’d like to know more about the great north faces of the Alps, check out this article!

About the guide

guide profile img

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
