Mountaineering

Technical scale: Mountaineering skills required for our expeditions, alpine tours and demanding trekking.
 
1 - easy
2 - quite difficult
3 - difficult
4 - very difficult
5 - extreme
 
Mountaineering is the underlying ability to climb any mountain. On classic expeditions, many exposed areas are secured.
 

1 - easy / simple

"Easy" on expedition already includes mountaineering in alpine terrain or on glaciers up to grad ZS/AD "quite difficult" according to alpine scale. Exposed areas and crevasses are fixed if possible. Basic knowledge in handling ice axe / crampons and rope is required.

2 - quite difficult

Route with extensive passages in the grad ZS/AD: Safe handling with an ice ax, crampons and rope are required. Exposed places or crevasses are fixed if possible or walked in rope team.

3 - difficult

Persistent suspended passages must be managed. These will be insured if possible. Mountaineering on the alpine scale S/D "difficult" with exposed climbing passages (up to IV. UIAA degree). Good use of crampons and rope is required, as well as safe climbing in combined terrain.
 

4 - very demanding

Exposed and demanding route. The difficulties range up to the alpine scale SS/TD "very difficult" and are mostly insured. Dealing with fixed rope and climbing clamps, increased demands on climbing technique, physical conditions and experience are required, as are all the demands of "difficult" mountaineering.
 

5 - extreme

Very demanding mountaineering, even without the possibilities of protection. The terrain will rarely exceed the alpine difficulty SS/TD, but can reach the requirements of the alpine scale AS/ES "extremely difficult". Above-average ability and a lot of experience in alpine mountaineering are expected.
 
Danger Warning: For safety reasons, your personal skills and sufficient experience are required for each expedition and ascent (specific description under Information / Requirements).

Stamina - Endurance

A mountain athlete needs endurance above any other specific fitness skill. Cardiovascular fitness is of course always subject to the movement (as climbing rocks or steep ice, you will not be able to transfer your triathlete or running fitness to mountains without being solid in the required mountaineering skills).

1 - Active Tour
Easy treks to EBC or on top of Kilimanjaro. You should be an active person.
 
2 - Sportive Tour
More demanding treks, simple climbs, like the climb of Elbrus. You should be a sportive person regularly exercising (at least 2-3x per week).
 
3 - Demanding Trek / Expedition
Very demanding treks like to the top of Aconcagua, or expeditions at the physical lower level like Ama Dablam. You should be an endurance athlete wit mountaineering experience. You should train endurance at least 3x/week.
 
4 - High Endurance - Expedition
To climb Everest (with oxygen-support) or some of the "easier" 8000m peaks you need a strong endurance. You should train specifically at least 4-5x per week.
 
5 - Very high Endurance - Expedition
Some of our special self-supported 8000m+ peak climbs as on Makalu, or to climb Everest (without oxygen-support) fit into this category. Your endurance should be near the level of a professional mountain athlete.

Itinerary - expedition event

Starting point: Berghaus Diavolezza (2974 m.a.s.l.)

Arrival until 16:30 / 17:00* - last mountain railroad (Fri.) / 8:00 - first mountain railroad (Sat.)

The valley station of the Diavolezza is located directly on the Berninapas road. In the triangle between Zurich, Milano and Munich and is accessible by the Rhaetian Railway or via the well developed road network. So you can reach our Xvent both by car and comfortably by train (stop Bernina Diavolezza). *The train runs in winter every 20min between 8:30 and 16:30, from 27. 02. between 8:00 and 17:00.

Day 1 (Fri.) - Drive to Diavolezza, dinner together.

Day 2 (Sat.) - Breakfast at 9:00, consultation & meeting, bivouac.

Day 3 (Sun.) - Mountain tour and/or training, journey home.


In addition to training for preparation and nutrition on expeditions, we discuss tactics and materials to stay dry, warm, and efficient even in very cold conditions. Furthermore, we deal intensively with the rules of acclimatization, symptoms of altitude sickness, and finally the treatment of the different forms of altitude sickness. We will also cover technical aspects of high-altitude mountaineering such as walking fixed ropes in ascent and descent and setting up high camps together.

After we have discussed a large part of the training content on the first day, we will set out to set up our high camp on the Pers Glacier before dark. Of course, the active part must not be neglected. Like later on expeditions, we may have to adapt the program to the weather and the current conditions.

This event is suitable for all participants of upcoming expeditions or to get to know our team. Basic knowledge of mountaineering is required, so that we can optimize your preparation. Usually, there are different level groups and several supervisors.

Recommendation: Bring the equipment for the planned expedition. Then we can evaluate your personal equipment in terms of use.

Equipment - You need:

  • Weatherproof clothing (e.g. Goretex), mountaineering boots and adapted crampons, ice axe, climbing harness, belay device, three locking carabiners, Prusik slings, webbing sling 120cm, helmet, sun protection, 2 pairs of gloves, hat, sleeping bag, and sleeping mat.
  • Either complete ski touring equipment or snowshoes
  • In each case with an avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel

Service: We also offer low-cost rental and purchase of quality equipment
