European Alps Ascents

Many of the most revered climbers on earth cut their teeth in Chamonix, home of our European operations base. The nature of the terrain compels climbers to have high levels of technical prowess, a result of the network of roads and lifts that provide us with convenience of access into the high mountains. This translates into fast access to the mountains for guided ascents and also ensures that when you join one of our European climbing courses, you gain a considerable amount of time in terrain that accelerates your skill development.

Our European-based guides are pre-eminent climbers who share a passion for the mountains and a willingness for you to achieve your goals in an atmosphere of camaraderie and support.

Of special note, our Alps trips are all-inclusive except for services and activities that are additional to the complete package and evening meals when in Chamonix (or other villages). This is unique and we made it this way so you know what the real costs are!

We offer guided ascents of:
