Description

Come with me to the top of Mönch (4,107m) in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland.

Also known as the Monk Mountain, Mönch is a fantastic climb for any mountaineer. Situated in an amazing formation along with Eiger (3,970m) and Jungfrau (4,158m), Mönch will leave you staring in awe.

These three mountains form a fascinating family of peaks. Like 3 siblings, the heights of each mountain also represents their positions. Jungfrau is the biggest and third, while Eiger is the shortest and first, with Mönch being the middle sibling in both height and position. The mountain saddle, Jungfraujoch (3,466m) connects the two largest sibling mountains. Together, it all makes for a stupendous sight and fascinating narrative one can attach to these spectacular peaks that can be seen from many miles away.

We will be making the ascent along the southern ridge. Scaling both rock and ice, the climb will be steady, not too easy, but not too difficult either. However, once we reach the summit it will all be worth it because you will get to enjoy a panoramic view of the lands below and the peaks beside and above. You will also get to see the great Aletsch Glacier, the Eiger Glacier, and the Lauterbrunnen Valley. And less than 1000 meters below the summit, you can also spot the Jungfrau Railway Tunnel.

So join me on this adventure to the summit of one of the Alps' most impressive and famous peaks, the Monch Mountain, while its siblings Jungfrau and Eiger look on. It will be a trip  you will never regret and never forget.

I'll be awaiting your request!

And if you are interested in joining me on a 2-day Ascent of the breathtaking Bluemlisalp Massif also found in the Bernese Alps, you can join me here.

Mountain Guide

I grew up in Switzerland in Buchs Valley and have been fascinated by the mountains since I was a kid. Since 2005, I have been able to pursue my passion for the mountains professionally, working as a mountain guide. I love the variety of activities and seasons: a steep descent in the Pul Lake, climbing rock walls or an ice fall, or going down a gorge in a neoprene suit and abseiling in impressive waterfalls. I like to share my love for the mountains with my clients and provide great and unforgettable experiences. When I am not working as a mountain guide, I'm a dedicated father of two kids, I love kitesurfing and to play the guitar. And I'm always looking forward to my next trip! I have been guiding in New Zealand for a summer saison 2005-2006 for a NZ company. I'm a IFMGA certified guide and I hold the
IFMGA Canyoning Guide licence as well.

We really enjoyed the whole experience. Pete and Fabian did an amazing job of guiding us to the summit of the Mönch and back down safely. It was an unforgettable experience.
