Description

The Wiwannihorn cirque offers many multi-pitch routes for beginner and advanced climbers! In a magnificent setting, facing the Mischabels and Mont Rose, you can learn or perfect your techniques. The Wiwanni hut, our accommodation, is a little paradise perched above Viège, at 2740m!

The Wiwanni climbing site has currently more than 100 routes perfectly equipped in the 3 areas of short climbs and the magnificent Wiwannihorn cirque. The latter has more than 30 large routes and is one of the most prestigious climbing sites in Switzerland.

If you simply want to learn climbing, like how to ensure a partner and tie in knot in a correct way, the place is great for this as well. The program is fully adaptable to your wishes.

Below this description, you’ll find an example of a  3-day climbing itinerary. As an alternative, instead of making a second long route it’s also possible to do an edge race on the Wiwannihorn.

I will take up to 4 people with me. If you are more, another IUAGM guide from the team will join us.

Are you interested in climbing in the Wiwanni area? Then please contact me! I can teach you the basics or help you improve your skills. Either me or another guide from the team will supervise you.

Accommodation

We will spend both nights in the Wiwanni hut. The places offers all the necessary comforts and a very warm welcome! The capacity of the hut is 28 people.

About the guide

guide profile img

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!
