Climbing as Exploration

Climbers are indeed modern-day explorers with particular dreams and visions. We look to carry the rhythm of exploration by highlighting not only our climbs, treks and courses, but the overall experience of these journeys. Whether attending our mountaineering school, trekking in the Himalayas or attempting an 8000m peak, we treat each expedition as a unique exploration. We realize that every team member is an adventurer in his or her own right, and joins us to embrace a challenge and to learn through experience. We encourage you to read through our website to gather additional information about each expedition.

All Alpine Ascents expeditions are carefully prepared. This means investigating quality climbs, selecting optimum routes, supplying top-quality provisions, and developing safety programs for each journey. Before departing on any expedition, we provide climbers with a wealth of information, and guides are available to answer questions. We realize helping climbers achieve personal goals starts well before the climb. We make great effort to be accessible, and respond quickly to all phone calls and e-mail inquiries. Unlike many organizations, we plan and lead our own climbs. The majority of our team members come from personal recommendations, and many are repeat climbers.

The Seven Summits

The Seven Summits company since 1986, Alpine Ascents has been guiding the highest mountain on each continent with more consistency and success than any other guide service. Our success in guiding the seven summits is the highest in the industry. Since Dick Bass first proposed the endeavor, a significant percentage of climbers to complete the seven summits have climbed with or guided for Alpine Ascents International. We have guided more people (271) to the summit of Everest than any other company. Fueled by an integrated passion of travel and climbing, we feel privileged to have second homes on each continent and look forward to sharing these glorious peaks with you

Seth and Devon were exceptional, and I would climb with them again.
