Why Climb the Matterhorn With Alpine Ascents?
We are blessed to have Perren Benedict, Swiss native as our Lead Guide and local expert, who also guides for us throughout the world. In addition to Bene, we employ top local guides who consistently make the expedition enjoyable, enriching and extremely educational.
One of the most important factors in the success and enjoyment for our climbers has been the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for the ever-changing conditions in the mountains. Rather than throwing our hands up and ending an expedition when a route may become unclimbable, we treat these situations as challenges in their own right and thanks to our experience and local expertise we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures for our climbers. When such occasions have arisen our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.
Bene has been guiding in Switzerland for the past 18 years and has consistently run multiple expeditions from year to year. The familiarity with the region, combined with our expertise and knowledge around the world, lend a depth and richness to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.
