Join Spanish IFMGA mountain guide Fede on this 6-day hut to hut traverse along the Monte Rosa Massif, in the Swiss Alps. You won't regret it!
The Monte Rosa massif is full of peaks of more than 4,000 meters, being the massif with the highest average elevation in the Alps. During this 6-day hut to hut adventure I propose to do more than one ascent per day. We will also get to know the entire massif through the famous Haute Route.
Our meeting point for this trip will be in Herbrüggen (Mattertal) where we’ll have a briefing talk and the equipment check. On day 2 we will take the cable car of Klein Matterhorn. From there on, every day will be a new adventure along the Monte Rosa Massif. You can find the details of the itinerary at the end of this description.
Finally keep in mind that participants must have a good fitness condition. Some basic mountaineering techniques will be also necessary. In many of the ascents we must use technical gear such as harness, safety carabiners, crampons and ice ax. It is essential that you know how to handle them in height.

Fantastic climb! We were the only people climbing the normal route so we had the mountain to ourselves. Fede was great, highly professional, and he assessed the risks very well. Highly recommended!
