    Guides

    Alpine Ascents looks to employ the finest guides in the industry, whether highly skilled instructors, experts in particular mountains or environs, as well as leaders and decision makers in the complex world of mountaineering. Guides for this trip are selected based on these factors, as Alpine Ascents looks to provide an environment where our guides excel, you are well prepared for success, and we remain environmentally sensitive with a keen eye on managing risks.

    Our guides leadership skills were excellent, best displayed by their patience, careful consideration, and communication of our summit plan considering adverse weather conditions. Both guides not only looked after our own safety, displaying experienced and deep knowledge, but also help others on the mountain where they could. -2024 Climber

    As always Alpine does a fantastic job at meeting and exceeding my expectations, and Aconcagua was no different. The entire experience was well-thought and well-planned…the organization, leadership and execution made the trip a success and allowed us clients to focus on the climb.

    • Not on the Gear List, But in our Backpacks
