Day 1: Ice-climbing instruction
Especially in ice, there are many pitfalls that you should be aware of if you wish to climb the four-thousand-metre peaks of the Alps. We will instruct you how to walk with crampons and steep ice climbing, we will show you belaying methods, practice a crevasse rescue and introduce you to diverse techniques in rope-handling. Thus you will be thoroughly prepared for the summit routes ahead.
Start: around 8:00 a.m.
Day 2: Allalinhorn (4027m)
Today you will climb your first four-thousand-metre peak! The ascent takes us past imposing crevasses up to the Feejoch. Soon you will be standing on the summit, where a magnificent panorama of the Mischabel Chain, the Monte Rosa Massif and the Matterhorn awaits you.
Duration: 4-5 hours
Start: around 8:00 a.m.
