Have you ever looked up in the mountains and seen rock climbers high on a rock face? That’s multi-pitch rock climbing! Routes can range between 2 and 25+ pitches (50-400m!) with various degrees of difficulty. The vertical world of multi-pitch climbing is exciting and challenging and requires knowledge.
Multi-pitch climbing is ascending a route that includes one or more stops at belay stands. A pitch is from one belay stand to the next. Tim will lead a pitch, while the 2nd climber lead-belays them. When he reaches the next belay stand, he belays the 2nd climber up. The process repeats until the route is climbed or the party retreats.
The best route for the team is carefully hand-picked by considering important factors like skill level, time available, weather, motivation level, etc. There is a route for everyone, even beginners!
Before leaving the ground and during the climb, your guide will instruct you on performing specific tasks and movements and provide words of encouragement. You are sure to learn a lot from experience. Oh! The views and photo opportunities are just incredible.
Is one day not enough for you? Consider booking our two-day trip with Alpine hut overnight. There are fantastic climbing routes out the door from these huts. It’s a beautiful way to combine rock climbing and the community around hut culture. Nothing beats waking up to Alpine sunrise.

“Tim took me up a multi-pitch climb up the side of the Stockhorn in Switzerland – and it was awesome!! I have a couple of years of experience in climbing single-pitch and a couple of multi-pitch routes, and to be able to go up with someone like Tim was very beneficial to me. I told him about my previous climbing experience, and he picked a route that challenged me but did not overwhelm me. The best part of my experience (if I had to choose just one thing) would be that Tim also taught me a lot of rope management skills and tips and tricks that help with efficiency while on the route. I had an absolute blast and am looking forward to the next adventure with Tim!” -Josh Cooper, Germany.
