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.
