Guides

Our guiding team is composed of world-renowned guides and full-time professional climbers. Many of these guides have historical climbing achievements synonymous with their names. They are part of Alpine Ascents because they understand and share our climbing principles. These individuals are dedicated to sharing their excellence with others. The role of an Alpine Ascents guide is to impart knowledge, use calculated judgment and assist with individual climber development. Our guides are experienced educators who evaluate their strengths by the achievements of their climbers. Ben Jones and Lakpa Rita Sherpa guided our 2013 and 2014 teams to the summit and they look to do the same in 2015.
