Adventure details

Valais mountaineering

Valais mountaineering is varied with Switzerland offering more than sixty peaks above 4000m in altitude. This is more than any other country in the Alps and there are many hundreds more not much lower. As a sure-footed intermediate alpinist, a good half of the routes to these summits are accessible climbs. These climbs involve snow, rock and ice.

In this week we do a mix of snow, ridge and rock climbing. It’s the perfect opportunity to work on your all-round mountain skills.

We are based in the Val de Bagnes for this week.

The trip is always adapted to the group’s capabilities, the week starts fairly easily and builds in intensity.

You can expect to spend at least 3 nights in mountain huts.

Some examples of routes we often do in our Valais Mountaineering trips:

  • Aiguille d’Orny
  • Aiguille du Tour
  • Mont Blanc de Cheillon traverse
  • Grand Cornier traverse
  • Nadelhorn
  • Dents des Rosses traverse
  • Jegihorn multi-pitch
  • Lagginhorn SW ridge
  • Wiwannihorn east ridge
  • Dent Blanche
  • Mirroir d’Argentine
  • Couronne de Breona traverse
  • Tsalion west ridge and Aiguille de la Tsa
