Description

You’ll have an unforgettable experience on this 2-day climbing trip.

From the two amazing peaks in the Swiss Alps, the Jegigrat (3370 m) and the Jegihorn (3206 m), we’ll have a majestic view of the Weissmies mountain. (in dialect, this name means „white foam“, and refers to its snowy top located at more than 4000 m.)

We will meet at Saas-Grund and check our equipment before taking the cable car up to Hohsaas, at 3101 m. From there, we will hike down to the Weissmies hut, an accommodation with unique views of the Weissmies, Fletschhorn and Lagginhorn peaks. There, we will leave our luggage before climbing the Jegihorn. If the weather does not allow it, we can also find alternative routes and continue on the following day.

This second day we will climb the Jegigrat before heading back to Saas-Grund.

To sign up, it is necessary to be in good physical condition and have a solid prior experience in climbing.

If it feels amazing already, it means you are ready to take the challenge and book this program now.

About the guide

I grew up in the mountains and have always loved being up there. I always knew I wanted to become a mountain guide and make a living out of this life-long passion. I've bee a certified mountain guide since 1989 and love showing my friends and clients what I think is the best in life.

I'm based in Frutigen, in the Bernese Oberland. During the summer, I mainly guide rock climbing here, in other parts of Switzerland (Wallis, Grisons...) and in some amazing spots, including southern France. During the winter and spring, I spend most of my time on my skis, in the Swiss Alps but also in Piemont, Austria, Arlberg...where I love to take my clients.
