Description

I want to invite you to climb the Eiger (3970 m), an emblematic mountain in the Swiss Alps!

Also, it’s my favorite guiding trip! It offers stunning views. When we climb the Mittellegi ridge, we will see majestic glaciers to the left. Besides, the beautiful green meadows of Grindelwald on the right. Also, we will have the opportunity to look into the famous and iconic Eiger North Face!

The Eiger climb is rated D, with sections of Class V rock or S. We will need ice axes and crampons to climb it. We will begin from the Eismeer train station (3159 m) on a glacier approach. The trail very exposed to rock and icefall.

Although the biggest hazard of this climb is crossing under the Eigerjocher towards the Mittellegi Hut (3355 m), once we pass the Eigerjocher, the ascent is up class V rock, leading to an easy traverse to the hut.

Then the climb continues along a knife edge ridge. We will use anchored ropes to cling on to if we need to. This way, we will be able to belay and pull up on them. We will also find snow and ice on the summit ridge towards the top of the mountain.

Then, we will climb down to Eigergletscher (West Face), or traverse to the Jungfraujoch via Eigerjocher D.

It’s important to note that once we have started the climb, we will not have the option of turning around. This means we are committed to climb up to the summit. At the Eiger, conditions may change rapidly and there is always the chance of rock and ice fall as we ascend.

It will take us about 4 to 5 hours to reach the top, and the same time to go down. We will not abseil down, so you must be able to climb down grade 3-4. I always short rope my clients for speed and safety!

So, contact me if you want to climb the Eiger! I will answer any questions you may have about the program. It will be an unforgettable climb!

Mountain Guide

Mountains have been a part of my life since childhood. I started doing more serious mountaineering expeditions at the end of high school after successfully completing all levels of mountain climbing courses. In the last 10 years, I have been at least on one expedition every year. I climbed in Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, the USA, Scotland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, France, Swiss, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal.

I completed my training as a mountaineering guide and became a full member of the IFMGA family.

I enjoy climbing both Slovenian and foreign mountains.

Some of my most unforgettable and also the most successful routes:

Tsoboje - Slovenian direct (2021)
Kang Ri - East pillar (2013)
Janak - Blue racer (2012)
K7 West - The dreamers of the golden caves (2011)

The route I climbed on K7 West was rewarded with Piolet d’or recognition for mountaineering achievements in the world.

If you want to climb the north face of Triglav (Slovenia’s highest mountain) or any other walls in Slovenia, please contact me. I also enjoy guiding ski trails in winter in the Julian Alps.

What a great day with Nejc! It may have been white out conditions with clouds but the climb and summit was amazing! Nejc was a joy to climb with and an incredible guide! Picked me up and we headed out to the park. He has so much experience as an elite alpinist and a great personality. Would love to climb again with him! Highly recommend Nejc and this trip.

I'm very happy and privileged to get to climb Matterhorn together with Marija. As a guide myself, I very much appreciate the chance to meet someone as experienced and knowledgeable as her, and to be able to gather knowledge. She's positive, humble and trustworthy, and I hope to do many more advanced climbs with her. Great guide, great trip. Thank you!

Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.

Marija was professional and showed great patience and fitness. This all culminated in a successful ascent of the Matterhorn. I would recommend her.
