Connect with an Expert at Your Convenience
We are passionate about mountaineering gear, and want to talk to you about what you need for your next trip.
Whether you’re registered for an Alpine Ascents trip or are planning your own expedition, our small, vetted staff is on deck to help you get prepared. We’re experts in not only equipping individuals head-to-toe, but also in meeting the group needs of both small climbing teams and larger expedition groups.
Private gear consultations put you in touch with one of our expert Gear Pros, who will be with you from the first conversation until your bags are packed and ready to go. We’re about straight-shooting, reality-based gear solutions to the harsh realities of life in the mountains – not glorified sales pitches!
