Gran Paradiso - September

Hi guys. I'll be heading to Chamonix at the end of this month for a second attempt to Mont Blanc. Hopefully the conditions will be better this time.

After that I shall pass to Italy and go for Gran Paradiso. My climbing partner will go home leaving me alone. I'll be there on the 4th of September. Anybody else has the same plan and wishes to team up? I'll have a 50m rope with me ...

Elbrus Guide Company

Swiss Alps - October


Long time lurker, first time caller etc...

May have the chance to get to the Valais in early October, and wondered if anyone had any experience of the hiking or scrambling peaks in the area at that time of year. Not looking at attempting a 4000m peak or anything like that.

Thinking Mettelhorn/Barrhorn, or some of the lower peaks of the Weissmies group like the Tallihorn/Stellihorn. Are these likely to be accessible? Would assume ...

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 ...
