Private Climbs in the Alps With Alpine Ascents
It was a great two weeks of climbing in the Alps! Our guides were excellent. I felt confident in their leadership and safe the entire trip. Climbing with them is like climbing with a good friend. —Alps Trilogy Climber
Given the low climber-to-guide ratio offered in the Alps, private guiding is an excellent option for those who want to customize a program or need particular departure dates. The flexibility benefits both the beginner climber and experienced climber as we can easily customize programs. While we feel our scheduled climbs offer an excellent opportunity for most climbers, circumstances may warrant a private climb to better suit your needs. Please note this is a rapidly growing program and we suggest contacting Alpine Ascents as early as possible.
We are committed to providing you with a comprehensive program, including managing all of the logistics and ensuring you have a safe, fun, and educational experience.
We can offer:
- – A fully customized trip led by an IFMGA/AMGA-certified guide
- – Exact start dates specific to your needs and schedule
- – An experienced, on-site Alps director, located in Chamonix/Zermatt during the season
- – Specific trip additions/modifications – such as adding more time for acclimatization, incorporating a summit attempt on an additional peak, or adjusting the itinerary based on weather and conditions
Each season, Alpine Ascents offers many private climbs for a number of reasons. In the past, we have created Mont Blanc summit climbs that are technical climbing weekend getaways for skilled climbers that are limited on time. We have also worked with small groups of up to four climbers to create their perfect European climbing vacation. For the beginner climber, we offer an introductory mountaineering course that goes at your pace and schedule. The advanced climber might enjoy a customized trip with a focus on climbing the Alps Trilogy, which includes climbing the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, and the Eiger, among other technical objectives.
Unlike other companies operating in the European Alps, we have the unique quality of being a high-end travel company that specializes in mountaineering expeditions. We bring our many years of experience as one of the best climbing companies in the world to create your custom or private expedition. Please email ([email protected]) with any questions or trip inquiries and we will help make your European climbing dreams a reality.
Excellent! Small class and individual attention from a real pro, can’t be beat. Excellent Guide, great focus on safety, much was learned. Far better training than I have received from other outdoor organizations.
