Description

A compact rock, a beautiful and varied climb, aerial passages, a snowy ridge. This is essentially what the North ridge of Zinalrothorn (4221m) has to offer. Come to this summit of the Pennine Alps near Zermatt.

It’s a comprehending and demanding race, which takes places within the mythical imperial crown. This includes the 4 other 4000m of Valais: Weisshorn (4505m), Ober Gabelhorn (4063m), Cervin or Matterhorn (4478m) and Dent Blanche (4356m). I can also guide you on these beautiful mountains.

You will remember forever the famous passage of the razor over Zinalrothorn!

For further details, you can check the 2-day itinerary below this description.

If you have a very good mountain technique and are in excellent physical shape, it’s possible to consider making the North Ridge of Rothorngrat crossing.

I will take only one person with me. If you are more, one or more UIAGM guides from my team can join us.

Are you interested in this beautiful trip or another one in the Pennine Alps? Then send me a request! I would love guiding you up there. If I am not available, another guide from the team will take you there.

In case you are seeking other mountain trips in the area, you can consider this 2-day ascent to Weissmies.
