Why Climb With Us

Why Climb in Bolivia with Alpine Ascents?

Schedule Flexibility

An important factor in our climbers’ success and enjoyment has been the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for the ever-changing conditions in the mountains. Rather than throwing our hands up and ending an expedition when a route may become unclimbable, we treat these situations as challenges, and thanks to our experience and local expertise, we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures. When such occasions have arisen our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.

Experience

Alpine Ascents guides are revered as outstanding mountaineers, instructors and cultural enthusiasts. We have been guiding in Bolivia for the past decade and have consistently run expeditions from year to year. The familiarity with the region, combined with our expertise and knowledge around the world, lend a depth and richness to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.

Success in 2014

Continuing our tradition of reaching summits around the world on enjoyable expeditions, our 2014 trip was a great successes.

It was well-organized, seamlessly integrated. Best guide I have had on any guided trip.
