Over the last  20 seasons( since 1997) for July and August each year, I have been guiding and instructing mountaineering and climbing in the Alps of Europe, based in Leysin, Switzerland. Leysin is centrally located and a perfect start to many great mountaineering and climbing options.

My  many seasons of alpine climbing experience and knowledge of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps is available to maximize YOUR guided climbing adventure in this magnificent mountain region of the world. I can offer you a variety of fantastic climbing options  to match your experience, skills, ambitions and the weather and conditions. Be it on snowy classics or multipitch granite rock classics, from the Swiss Bernese Oberland with Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau to the Mont Blanc range and the Gran Paradiso in Italy, the climbing playground is huge and fabulous. It can  however be busy, especially if your valley access is  via a lift or you go to something famous. I know many ‘out of the way’ places that offer superb climbing and mountaineering where the masses aren’t….

How to organize your Guided Climbing Trip in Switzerland

On your own or with a climbing buddy, I offer week long trips on classic, easy and moderate peaks on a 1:2 ratio and more demanding mountaineering on a 1:1 ratio. If you plan a guided climbing trip in Europe, it may be possible to work in with one of our visits to Switzerland. We offer a selection of itineraries to choose from according to weather and conditions and will assist you to put together a memorable climbing adventure.

Maybe it is a mountaineering instruction course that is most suited to you or a combo  tailor made week with a mix of instruction and climbing.

We offer top quality guided mountain climbing experiences and look forward to helping you achieve your dream of  a quality and  comfortable climbing and mountaineering trip based out of Switzerland.
