Highlights

  • Climb 2 amazing peaks in the Swiss Alps: Monch and Jungfrau.
  • See the amazing Alps from 2 distinct summits.
  • Spend the night in a comfortable and scenic mountain hut.

Description

Monch (4,107m) and Jungfrau (4,158m) are two of the most well-known peaks in the entire Swiss Alps. And on this 2-day trip, you will have the opportunity to reach the summit of both of these majestic mountains.

Rising up from the wonderful Swiss commune of Grindelwald, we will meet at  Jungfraujoch, from where we’ll start our way to the Monch mountain. The climb itself, while only lasting one day will be challenging. However, as long as you have some prior climbing experience and are in good physical condition, reaching the summit is a very attainable goal. And once you get to the peak’s apex, the views you will get to enjoy are astounding. After you’ve enjoyed the summit, we will then make our way to the Mönchjochhütte (3,658m), where we will spend the night.

On the second day of the trip, we will make our way from the hut to the summit of Jungfrau. Just like Monch, the climb to the summit of Jungfrau will be tough, but manageable. And from the summit, you will get to enjoy even more incredible views of the stunning Swiss Alps. After you’ve spent enough time on the summit, we will then make our descent and return to  Jungfraujoch.

Climbing to the summits of 2 incredible peaks in just 2 days is not common, especially in a mountain range as enormous as the Alps. However, on this trip, that is exactly what you will get to do. So if that sounds like the kind of adventure you are looking for, just send me a request.

Itinerary

Day 1: Jungfraujoch to MÖNCH

Starting from Jungfraujoch (3463m) we will get into the magical nature of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Passing through mixed terrain with rock and ice, we will take the south ridge to reach Mönch’s summit. The views of the lowlands and the high Alps from the 4110m peak are stunning. We’ll then descend towards Mönchsjochhütte hut.

Ascent -> 3 hours, 650 meters of elevation gain.

Descent -> 2 hours, 450 meters of elevation loss.

Day 2: Mönchsjochhütte to JUNGFRAU

Starting early from the hut, we will pass by Jungfraujoch and start the ascent to Jungfrau. We’ll climb over the spur, first in ice and then in rock, until we reach firn that goes up to the foot of the Rotalsattels. A steep rise in firn follows, followed by easy climbing alternating with firn passages to the summit of the Jungfrau at 4158m. We’ll once again admire breathtaking views, and then take the route back to the Jungfraujoch.

Ascent -> 4-5 hours, 900 meters of elevation gain.

Descent -> 3 hours, 900 meters of elevation loss.
