Welcome to Alpine Ascents
Celebrating 37 years of leading successful expeditions in 2023, Alpine Ascents International, Inc. is a leader in the climbing industry and has been instrumental in setting guiding standards in the international climbing community for most of our history. This year, we will offer more than 30 different expeditions and 50 training courses in 14 countries, including the Arctic and Antarctic regions. These expeditions range from three-day climbs of Mount Rainier to training courses in the North Cascades and Alaska, and ascents of the highest mountains around the world. Alpine Ascents’ philosophy is based on a true love and understanding of mountain wilderness. Our mission and goals are simple: by using the best climbing talent in the country, we offer the opportunity for climbers at all levels to achieve their personal aspirations through quality, challenging, safety conscious and fun expeditions. Unparalleled mountain adventures are what we do.

It was wonderful. The most important component in any trip is the personal interactions. Our group was diverse, but cohesive and Willie was fabulous. Another person who contributed greatly was Shasha, our cook at camp.
