These are the most popular courses we run in the summer and for good reason. Every alpinist aspires to climb Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, the Eiger at some point Usually these courses are run over 6 days with an acclimatisation or training peak done first to make success more likely.  For those with an aversion to mountain huts, there is also a fantastic amount of superb day climbs that can be done starting from the valley, using the cable cars and returning home after.

Some may have a strong climbing background but the Alpine side is new and you require training for travelling on a glacier, crevasse rescue, avalanche awareness and general differences that the Alpine environment presents. Others may be looking to undertake a classic glaciated journey through the mountain such as Chamonix Zermatt and many will be drawn to the challenge to climb all the 4000 m peaks of the Alps. Whatever you would like to do, please email your enquiry to rosshewittguiding@yahoo.com. The guiding ratio varies according to the course and all these courses are bespoke to your exact needs.
