Private Climbs

Our Expertise at Your Convenience

While we celebrate our famed expeditions worldwide, certain situations are perfect for a privately guided trip.

Over the past 25 years, Alpine Ascents has arranged private climbs and journeys to nearly every corner of the globe. Private trips are a great way to make your trip as customized as possible and limit team size to a pre-organized group. In most cases we can add porters, acclimatization days, and summit days, or provide for partners who would like to join a trip without climbing.

If you would like information on the above please contact Gordon Janow to help you plan your next travel experience.

I was thrilled to be in Antarctica. The plane ride over was exciting. The scenery was spectacular. I have always found Alpine Ascents to be excellent compared to other groups I’ve traveled with.

  • 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. When choosing a tent, it’s easy to focus on those factors and arrive at the conclusion that a single-walled shelter […]

  • Alpine Start Breakfast

    When summit morning arrives, it’s important to move efficiently through packing, preparation, and last but not least – breakfast! Mike Hawkins talks through a few of the foods we like to eat for quick fuel on alpine start mornings. Whether it’s midnight or 3:00am, these options are our go-to fast breakfasts.
