You also need a lot more ice and mixed experience and just log a bunch of mountain days. Your only chance is to move to Chamonix, Zermatt or another mainland climbing hub, find some job and go climbing every weekend for the whole season.

Finding partners isn't the hard part, sustaining motivation, income and staying injury free for a period of a few years is.

Plus Ski-mountaineering, plus plus plus plus.

"...i don't like the germans, and i like the english people more than the french/suisse/italian/..."

A good thing to put on your guide profile once you get it. Good stereotypes are certainly valuable in life, but when it comes to dealing with people of a given race/nationality/... that you already know you don't like at a business level, best to let them know it before they spend their hard-earned Euros (dollars, ...) on someone that already knows enough about them to know that they won't get along.

Stef, I'll give you full permission to post a picture of me in your guidebook. It will draw women and men alike. :wink:
