Two friends and I are looking for a crew to climb the Finsteraarhorn and Jungfrau in the last week of July and first week of August.
In the week of 21st to 28th of July, we'll be following the C2 course, given by the NKBV (the Dutch National Mountaineering Club) in the Bernese Alps. This involves every aspects of safe travel on glaciers and in alpine terrain:
- trip planning
- safety techniques
- rescue techniques

After this week, we'll be fresh on practice and acclimatised. The plan is to find a group of experienced climbers to climb the Finsteraarhorn and Jungfrau. Itenerary to be discussed.
I myself am the least experienced.
2011: 6 day hike in Jotunheimen, Norway
2012: 7 day C1 course in Gross Venediger massive, including the climb of the Gross Venediger
2012: 5 day hike in the Atlas mountains, climbing the Toubkal (4167 m)

We all have the necessary materials.
"Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word 'safe' that I wasn't previously aware of."
