Youth Alpine Initiative on the Jegihorn

The YAI has got off to a great start in Saas Grund, Switzerland. The weather is clear and sunny and everyone is making the most out of the long climbing days in the mountains. Saas Grund is surrounded by 4000ers, 10+ pitch crags and a plethora of lifts to make easy access all round.

After acclimatising on a 10 pitch route up the face of the Jegihorn (3140m) yesterday, the youth crew are set to summit their first 4000m peak today. Spirits are high and the adrenaline is running. This is where all the training comes into practice.

We look forward to seeing the photos from the summit!
