Looking for any advice on trekking routes in Switzerland!

Hi all,

Been a long time since I've been on these forums, but I remember this being an amazing community for information about climbing and trekking, so I thought I'd reach out for advice.

My wife and I are in Freiburg, Germany for the summer (leaving in ~1 month), and have not been to the alps yet... mostly been climbing and running in the Black Forest area. We don't have any gear aside from shoes ...

Dufourspitze climb and aclimitisation

Hi guys,

Wondering if you can offer some advice. I'm looking to complete the trifecta in climbing Dufourspitze, Mont Blanc and Gran Paridiso. I only have Dufourspitze left to do.

I'm going to hire a guide from the alpine center but need to acclimatise and having never been to Zermatt before would like some advice for acclimatising solo. Are there easy hikes in the area that go above 3000? Or is everything requiring crampons, roping ...

Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts

Has anyone ever hiked to the Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using the ski lifts?
I heard that you can hike from Gresonney and that it takes about 6 hours, but can't find much information about how technical it is, actual hiking time (for medium fitness), scenery en-route, etc.
Any advice or info much appreciated.

Alta Via 2 in Dolomites, Italy

Hi all!

5 friends and myself are planning a trek through the Dolomites this July. We would like to do the Alta Via 2, because it's more remote and less crowded than the classic Alta Via 1. We have no Via Ferrata experience though, but are used to trekking.

The route is mostly done in 10 days, but we only have 8 days for trekking. That means we can only do a part of it. ...
