Description

The Val d’Hérens is a fantastic area for climbers (beginner or experienced) and those in search of beautiful mountain adventures. I really like this place and I know it very well since I live nearby.

Whether on classic routes or more engaged, my goal is over all to share my passion for the mountains while guaranteeing maximum safety. We can do many things together in the Val d’Hérens. Among the various possibilities, I list here my favorites:

  • Pigne d’Arolla. It is a beautiful summit of initiation and discovery, from the vignettes or crossing from the Dix lodge.
  • Dent Blanche, the great classic of the valley. We can ascend it by its normal route (AD) or by the north ridge, the road André Georges (TD).
  • Les Aiguilles Rouges d’Arolla, rocky and aerial crossing, a beautiful ridge race uncrowded of the Valley.

There are also many other options such as the crossing of Couronnes de Bréona (AD); le Grand Cornier crossing from the bivouac of the Dent Blanche (AD); la Tête Blanche by the Bertol Lodge or the crossing from the Dent Blanche Lodge (F). L‘Aiguille de la Tsa from Bertol (AD-) is another possibility or Tsalion-Tsa from Arolla (AD); the crossing of Douves Blanches (D); the great crossing of the Bouquetins (D); the Grand Mont-Collon and the pillar of the rising sun (TD).

And I can continue: l’Evêque and Southwest edge (AD); the Mont Blanc de Cheilon in crossing (AD) or by the normal way from Dix lodge (PD).

I invite you to contact me if you want to discuss about this 2 day tour in the Val d’Hérens. I’ll be waiting for your message!!
