Highlights

 
     

    Do you feel the need to take a break? Do you want to take a good dose of fresh air, enjoy splendid views and exercise for 3 days? Then join me in the ascent of Monte Rosa. 

    It’s an ideal program if you want to ascend not one, but several 4000s. Besides, the ascents are not particularly difficult so the focus is in enjoying the journey.

    We will be in a glacial atmosphere, with imposing mountain faces at the Monte Rosa massif. The program is progressive, thus preparing us each day for the following day.

    Firstly we reach the Mantova refuge easily with the help of the cablecar. This refuge will be our base at the heart of Monte Rosa. During these 3 days mountaineering we will cover the basics of crampon use as well as high mountain safety techniques. Then we will attack the emblematic 4000s of Monte Rosa.

    The top reasons why I like guiding my friends and clients here are:
    – The ascent of Punta Gnifetti (Signalkuppe 4554m) by a glacial route
    – The most beautiful summits of the Alps concentrated in one area
    – Easy access by train

    If you are an established group let me know and I may adapt the program to suit your needs.

    It’s an accessible and different program for mountain lovers. Find it interesting? Then please send me a request to start this adventure! And of course Monte Rosa is amazing in the winter as well, have a look at this freeride skiing program.
