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

My goal was to summit, learn about the county, culture and people. All three were met. It was a most enjoyable and memorable trip. I never heard a complaint about another member…there was caring and concern and celebration when there was success.

    by Paul Koubek  As one of the western guides fortunate to work with the Alpine Ascents Kilimanjaro Program, when I was asked to write a blog post about any topic I wanted, the first thing that came to mind for me about my experience on Kilimanjaro was: the people!

  • Hunger Relief Fundraiser Raises Over $30K for Kilimanjaro Crew

    We have not been able to operate Kilimanjaro expeditions since February 2020, and during that time our friends over in Tanzania have not been far from our mind. COVID-19 has decimated the Kilimanjaro tourism industry and the income that the local people rely on to house and feed their families. In a typical year, travel […]
