Climbing Tour Reeti

At 2757m, Reeti is far shy of the higher mountains of the Bernese Alps. However, this lesser-known peak provides an excellent, scenic adventure and offers some of the best views of the Bernese 4000ers out there. A full traverse of this mini alpine ridge, including Esel, Simeli and Reeti is all in all a very rewarding climb. Our mountain guide will tell you lots of exciting things about the Grindelwald Valley and its history along the way.

Day 1: Climbing Tour Esel-Simeli-Reeti

We continue along the ridge which leads to the Simelihorn: the final section here involves some proper climbing. The mountain guide will lead you calmly and safely to the summit. Wow - what a view you have from up here! The 4000m peaks of the Jungfrau Region stand at parade rest. After a quick pause, we continue along the conecting ridge to Reeti. A few more tricky climbing passages and it's done. Now we can take well-deserved rest. Once sufficiently refreshed, we may start our descent to the idylic Fernandeshittli, built in memory of an English painter. Here we join the hiking trail and follow it back west to Bussalp. At the Bussalp mountain restaurant we may grab a cold drink and let our gaze wander over the skyline we have just covered. This long and interesting day comes to an end with a bus ride to Grindelwald.
