Rock Climbing-Mountain Guide-Climbing Guide Zermatt
Rock climbing with a Climbing Guide – Mountain Guide Zermatt is for all who like to face a challenge
Most mountaineers come to Zermatt because of the four thousand meter high mountains. In spite of the high mountains around Zermatt there are a large number of worthwhile rock climbs. On the south side of the Riffelhorn are the nicest multi pitch climbs. The climbs are distinguished by super firm gneiss and a unique high alpine environment. The climbs offer a very impressive view of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Breithorn, Gornergletscher and all these in a T-shirt and climbing shoes.
