Mountain RangeAlps
Duration2 days
Offer periodJun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Type of tripNot specified


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.

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!
