The goal is to equip you with knowledge and skills that will ensure your safety and independence on upcoming private summer high-altitude tours.

This three-day camp allows you to fill in your individual learning gaps and opens up the world of independent touring. All our courses are designed to be very hands-on. If you’re looking to memorize complex rescue maneuvers according to a specific plan, you’re in the wrong place. But if you want to keep it simple and chill while heading into the mountains, you’re in the right spot!

On a high-altitude tour, you’ll navigate various terrains, whether it’s rock, glacier, or snow, and you should be comfortable in every situation. The first two days focus on rock and glacier/firn elements. On the third day, we put what you’ve learned into practice on a real tour.

Depending on the weather, we might need to adjust the program…


Mountaineering Camp – Rock

After the approach to a suitable terrain (near an SAC hut), we do education on the rock. Whether you are already climbing or “just” hiking, there is something for everyone.

  • When do I use where, which rope?
  • Glacier rope, short rope, micro pitches, pitches

We’ll be forming two to three different groups, categorized based on your experience level.

  • Advanced
    (I already have experience and want to tackle challenging high-altitude tours independently)
  • Motivated
    (I’m new to high-altitude tours but have experience in mountain hiking, climbing, or something similar)
  • Beginners
    (I’m new, and my experience in this area is not extensive yet)

 We’ve tried our best to preassign the groups. Depending on how you feel, you can also switch groups.
