The Adventure Consultants Monte Rosa Summits Programme enables you an opportunity to climb several of these peaks within a short timeframe. If you are a seasoned mountaineer you will enjoy the plentiful summit opportunities whilst some of our guests utilise the opportunity to consolidate cramponing technique and general climbing fitness whilst completing these fine climbs. In fine weather, coupled with a healthy dose of enthusiasm, it is possible to complete six or more of these 4000m+ peaks on our 6 day program!
This option will appeal to those with previous experience who want to enjoy a spectacular new region and is also appropriate for first time alpinists with a good level of fitness and a hiking or rock climbing background. Instruction can be included into your itinerary to get you started followed by the ascents themselves.
Attainable summits include the highest peaks in the Monte Rosa Massif; the Signalkuppe (4554m), Parrotspitz (4436m) and Piramide Vincent (4215m), as well as Castor (4228m) Pollux (4092m) and the Zermatt Breithorn (4164m).
