    Join me for a 2-Day Rock Climbing Course in Zermatt, in the stunning Swiss Alps.

    As soon as a person arrives in Zermatt, or anywhere else in the Swiss Alps, they look up, see the peaks, and immediately want to climb them. It’s easy to see why anybody would have that kind of reaction. Because after just a glance at those glorious peaks, who wouldn’t want to scale them to the top? Who wouldn’t want to reach their summits and see an unrivalled view of what appears to be the entire world that only a select few will ever get to enjoy?

    However, before you begin to realise those dreams and ambitions, it’s important to learn how to Rock Climb safely. It’s important to know the proper techniques, so you can enjoy the thrill of Rock Climbing over and over again. Hence the importance of the skills you will learn during this course that will be conducted on a Crag. Some of the items we will cover include, Rope Handling, Belaing Techniques, Introductory Climbing Techniques, Rappelling, Top-Rope Climbing, Lead Climbing.

    On the second day, south of Zermatt, we will climb the Riffelhorn (2,928m). This amazing peak that looks like a spike shooting up from the ground will put all of the skills you learned and refined the day before to the test. While also providing you with an amazing view of the famous Matterhorn and Monte Rosa.

    So come, let me teach you how to properly and safely Rock Climb in Zermatt. And afterwards, use that knowledge and let me guide you up the Riffelhorn, where you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the Alps.

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    And if you want to take a course in Ice Climbing that also involves climbing Breithorn. You can join me here.
