Why Climb With Us

Why Climb in Mongolia with Alpine Ascents?

Schedule Flexibility

Important to success and enjoyment for our climbers is the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for ever-changing mountain conditions. Rather than throwing up our hands 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 have regularly praised these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.

Experience and Recent Success

We have been running successful expeditions in Mongolia since 2000 and look forward to a 17th year of operation.   Our 2018 Mongolia expedition with seven climbers saw 100% summit success with Brian Houle at the helm.  Our 2017 team with 8 climbers all topped out with Ben Jones as lead. Our 2016 Mongolia expedition saw 100% summit success! Our familiarity with the region, our expertise, and our knowledge of mountaineering around the world lend a depth and richness to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.

The ground support was excellent in the areas of travel, timing, events. My individual goals were met and exceeded, My guide was extremely patient and he is a superb teacher, I feel lucky to have had him as a guide. Our Mongolian liaison was outstanding.

  • Single Wall Tents – Condensation Factories

    Most tent manufacturers these days offer a superlight, two pound (or less!) tent. These tents are simple to setup, occupy a very small footprint, and again – weigh in at about or under two pounds.
