Watch: Is this the perfect 4,000m peak for beginners?

Have you always dreamed of summiting a 4,000m peak? Of ticking that climbing milestone off your bucket list once and for all? Well, it may be a little easier than you’d think…

While the big names in the Alps, like the Matterhorn or the Eiger, come with a fearsome reputation, this short video shows that there are some less challenging peaks in the range that European and British climbers can bag this summer.

It shows Youtube user ‘Never Too Late’ climbing the Lagginhorn (4,010m), and it looks like the perfect introduction to big-mountain climbing for British hikers and hill-walkers.

It’s already on my to-do list, check out the video below and see if it’ll earn a spot on yours too.
