Are you an experienced mountaineer looking for the next great challenge? Then come and join us for a 2-day climbing adventure that will take you to the summit of the Schreckhorn (4,078m) in the Swiss Alps.

Long considered the most difficult 4,000 meter plus peak in the Swiss Alps, the Schreckhorn is the perfect peak for an accomplished mountaineer looking for another notch on their belt. Needless to say, participants on this trip must be experienced mountaineers and be in good physical condition.

Our trip will begin at the Pfingsteggbahn. We will make our way up to the mountain station and hike to the Schreckhorn hut (2,530m), where we will eat dinner and rest for the night.

On the following day, after breakfast at the hut, early in the morning, when it’s still dark, we will head toward Gaag and then make our way to the Schreckfirn Glacier. We will then traverse the Sudwandcouloir. After that, we will continue climbing until we reach the summit of the great, challenging mountain. From the summit you will get to enjoy some magnificent views before we begin our long descent. We will take the same route we ascended to the hut, or continue on to Grindelwald. This will be a long, tough day, as we will be walking for approximately 12 hours and climbing approximately 1,750 meters.

If you are looking for a thrilling, difficult climb in the Alps, this is the trip for you. To join us to the summit of the Schreckhorn, please send a request.

We also offer another challenging trip, a 2-day traverse of Bluemlisalp from Kandersteg, which you can enjoy here.
