Why Climb the Matterhorn With Alpine Ascents?
We have been guiding the Matterhorn for the past 15 years. 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.
One of the most important factors in the success and enjoyment for our climbers 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 in their own right and thanks to our experience and local expertise we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures for our climbers. When such occasions have arisen our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.
The expedition to the Matterhorn was my second trip with Alpine Ascents, and it more than lived up to my expectations. The guides were excellent, the climbing was fantastic. This was an excellent trip that only served to further Alpine Ascents standards.
