Conquer one of the most famous granite faces in the Alps.

Spend the night in a cozy Swiss mountain hut.
Situated in southeastern Switzerland and renowned as one of the most famous granite faces in all of the Alps, the North Ridge of Piz Badile is a must-do for any serious climber!
After meeting up either at the parking lot in Bodo or the Sasc Furä hut, which is a short hike away, we will discuss our plans for the following day’s ascent and spend the evening relaxing.
Getting up early the next morning, we will begin our climb up the peak’s North Ridge on a mix of slopes and ridges, rated from UIAA III to IV with a few places of IV+.
We will finish the ascent with a climb up the famed Cassin Route. Enjoy the feeling of climbing this pure granite wall as you go. You’ll find few others like it anywhere else!
After about 7 hours of climbing, we will reach the summit. We will spend a bit of time here enjoying the views before we begin our descent back down the south side of the mountain, in Italy, to the Gianetti Hut and then on down to Bagni del Masino. From here, we will return to Bondo via taxi.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for some of the best granite climbing around as we ascend the North Ridge of Piz Badile from Bondo, Switzerland!
If you like the look fo this trip, but want to try out something just as scenic with a bit less intensity, then I think you will also enjoy my easy day of rock climbing on Schober-Frauenkopf, near Salzburg!

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.
One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.

This weekend i went with Daniel to the Grossglockner via the normal route and the experience was perfect. Everything was arranged and felt safe the whole trip. i would reccomend Daniel to everyone who wants to climb some mountains in the alps. In the future i will again make use of his services if i decide to climb in the alps once more.
very good guide, wonderful experience
Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!
Daniel guided us safely to Matterhorn summit via Hörnli Ridge. We visited Swiss and Italian summits and then headed back to Hörnli Hut. In very good conditions this whole trip took us just approx. 8 hours. Daniel is a very strong and skilled climber – he knows the route, gives good insight on how to climb each section and is continuously aware during short roping to prevent a possible slip. Just understand that Matterhorn climb is a very intense effort - there\'s not awfully lot of time for taking photos, admiring the views or relaxing during the climb.
