Day 1


First day is designed to know each other and practice rock climbing and rope-work. We will choose a rock climbing site around Chamonix and we will do one longer or several shorter rock routes in big boots as well as practicing basic rope manoeuvres we will need on The Eiger. Although a training day it also should be a fun climbing day in its own right.

Alternatively we could do the normal route on Aiguille du Peigne.

Overnight in Chamonix

Day 2

Arête des Cosmiques / Aiguilles Marbrees / Aiguilles d'Entreves

We meet in the morning at Aiguille du Midi and we take the cable car to the last station. Then, we will cross the glacier and do the Arête des Cosmiques – an iconic mixed climb above Chamonix. The objective of this day is to get you slowly acclimatised and work on rope manoeuvres and climbing mixed terrain with crampons.

Alternatively, if the route is too crowded or not in good conditions we could cross into Italy and traverse either Aiguilles Marbrees or Aiguilles d'Entreves

Overnight in Chamonix.

Day 3

Chamonix - Grindelwald - Mittellegi hut

We will drive from Chamonix to Grindelwald; from here we will take the train to Eismerr and walk / climb to Mittellegi hutte where we spend the night.

Day 4

Mittellegi hut - summit attempt - Monchsjoch hutte

We start early in the morning from the Mittellegi hut, we climb the Mittellegi ridge and descend by the South Ridge all the way to Monchsjoch hut where we spend the night.

Day 5

Monchsjoch hut - Grindelwald - Chamonix

We will leave the Monchsjoch hut, take the train back to Grindelwald and drive back to Chamonix.
