Scenic shot of the Eiger. A memorable climb with a fantastic team.

The project of the Great Alps, which included the following peaks, Mt Blanc (4,809m), the Matterhorn (4,478m) and the Eiger (3,970m), is a mission success. 438 ETAH and CASOL stood on the top of Europe, among which the most symbolic and legendary peaks. All peaks were successfully climbed and everyone is safe. Most importantly, everyone is thrilled and satisfied.

Upcoming Expedition 2016: The Great Alps

This upcoming August 2016, I will embark on a new mountaineering expedition, this time to the Alps. The theme of the expedition is to highlight the symbolic and legendary attributes of these mountains through a combination of summits in one expedition. My objective for this expedition is to climb the Matterhorn, Mont-Blanc and the Eiger via the Mittellegi ridge. These mountain peaks will be climbed within a timeframe of two weeks. This is a serious expedition that is personally undertaken and that will warrant exposure to the dangers and high risks of the great Alps.

Upcoming Expedition 2013/2014!

Illiniza sur

This upcoming December, friend Andre Simoneau and I are heading to Ecuador for some mountaineering in the Andes. After two years we are reuniting for a new expedition. This will mark our third expedition together. We intend on climbing the technical face of Illiniza sur (5,248m/17,267ft), then climb Cotopaxi (5,897m/19,347ft) and spend christmas on the glaciers of Chimborazo before heading to its summit (6,268m/20,564ft).

Neither of us have ever climb in Ecuador. We anticipate favourable weather and lots of fun! You can follow us on SPOT tracker.
