Description

The perfect climbing tour for people who want to tackle their first 4000 plus meter peaks in the Alps, this 3 day trip is definitely an adventure worth enjoying. During this trip, we will be climbing to the summits of Weissmies (4,017m) and the Lagginhorn (4,010m). Both of these peaks are part of the 82, 4000 meter plus peaks found throughout the Alps.

While this trip is a great starter in the Alps, participants should still have prior climbing experience. You should also be in good physical condition because we will be spending approximately 8 hours per day climbing and ascending up to 1,300 meters per day as well.

After beginning and departing from Saas Grund, the hut base of our trip will be the Weissmieshutte (2,726m). Very comfortable, with fantastic views of the Alps, the hut also provides great access to both Weissmies and the Lagginhorn.

Scaling Weissmies is the easier of the two peaks to climb, as there is no real technical aspects. However, you should have experience with crampons. For the Lagginhorn, the climb is a bit more technical, but not too much. Thus giving you 2 great climbs that you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy.

Along with the two peaks you will be climbing on this trip, you will also get to visit Kreuzboden, and enjoy a wonderfully scenic train ride in the Alps.

Climbing to the summits of Weissmies and the Lagginhorn is a fantastic experience. And on this trip, you can reach both of those summits in just 3 days. To join me on this trip, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a 4 day trip that will take you to the summits of Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn.

We got a guide for backcountry skiing in Chamonix. The guide was excellent in fulfilling our wishes even though the viability was poor and snow layer thin. Our goals was to in a quiet nature area with not too many people. We ended up with 1000 meter gain and a ski through the forest over a 6 hour period. I was one of my best ski experiences.

We had an amazing experience with Leo. Not only did he take us to a great bouldering location, but he really helped with technique to use for our future climbs. He was able to accommodate harder climbs for my husband while making sure I was still able to climb as a beginner. It was also extra special climbing with a local. Would recommend!
