Alpine Ascents is known worldwide for the unparalleled quality of its guide staff. Recent Elbrus guides include famed mountaineers Todd Burleson and Vern Tejas. While many other outfitters are little more than a “one-man show,” our trips are led by professional mountaineers with great flexibility in guide staff, full-time office support, logistics and access, and information for other great climbs around the world.
Vern is the ultimate in guides. His reputation proceeded him, but he surpassed even the high expectations I had for him. He is 100% confident in what he does, without any sense of arrogance.
