Custom Gear Lists
Gear lists will vary depending on the trip. After arranging your private climb, Alpine Ascents will provide a gear list specific to your trip. You may view some of our standard Gear Lists as examples below; most private trips will be similar to those listed.
Alpine Ascents’ dedicated Gear Department is ready to assist with your climbing questions and preparations. Our full-time, year-round staff are available to give gear advice, enter rental reservations, or recommend purchases from our retail shop. All Alpine Ascents climbers receive a discount on each purchase in our Gear Shop.

Meals & Camp Cooking
Those electing to purchase a breakfast/dinner meal package do not need to bring a stove, cookware, or fuel. Those electing to cook their own breakfasts/dinners on the mountain must bring a stove, any necessary cookware, and fuel sufficient for the duration of the trip. Call the Gear Department if you have any questions about this.
Pack Size & Group Gear
All climbers will assist in carrying tents and climbing equipment (such as ropes or pickets) to camp. When deciding on a pack size, keep this gear in mind, and consider test-packing before traveling to Washington. Call the Gear Department for advice on how much group gear by volume or weight you will help carry to camp.

First class operation. It seemed organized and well planned out from the very start. Our guides were superb! They explained techniques and demonstrated how to perform them and then asked that the climbers practiced. I really enjoyed the skill training and learned A LOT!
