Swiss Rock Guides

Mountaineering Week at Oberaltesch

Far away from the big crowds, we stay at the Oberaltesch hut, a very nice, classic Swiss alpine hut above the glacier of Oberaletsch with a great view of the Aletschhorn. We will do moderate climbs every day to the Gross Fuesshorn, Rotstock,  Nesthorn and as final we climb the Bietschorn. We hike out to Blatten in the Loetschental.

Max. 2 clients.
