Topic - Swiss Alps Questions

matthewbromley - on 22 May 2014
Apologies for the general post with so many questions.

I'v just decided to go walking for 5 days in the Swiss Alps with 2 friends in the first half of June. They do not climb and so I was thinking of tagging on some more serious stuff on the end of the trip.

Is this a good time of year to go?

Any recommendations and/or tips for the hiking?

I lead up to HS, and climb 7b in the gym. I know basic crampon and ice axe use, I've climbed Mont Blanc De Chellion as part of a mountaineering course a few years back and continue to head to the UK mountains in winter when I can.

Any thoughts on appropriate climbs?
Any recommendations for guides?
