12 Day Alaska Mountaineering Course Testimonials

Exceeded expectations on all levels.  Superb!  Fun, challenging, beautiful, adventures…Lots of great climbs and happy times in the mountains.  Both guides were excellent.  I had the utmost confidence in their ability.

Heather K.

Excellent!  Having this class in Denali National Park exposed me to a class and quality of climbing beyond my expectations.  This class was a great balance between safety, team building, skills and a lot of climbing.  Best climbing I have ever done!  My skills improved measurably.

Program was excellent.  Awesome location.  Inspiring scenery.  Guides generated good camaraderie.  We learned quite a few skills, learned useful tricks of the trade and were challenged.  Would recommend highly to others!

Steve H.

A very thorough course set in the most beautiful location I have ever been in!

David H.

The program was very intensive and a wonderful experience.  I have never climbed in the Alaska Range before, and this was a great introduction.  The skills taught and the knowledge of the guides was fantastic.

Rich K.

I was very happy with the course.  I achieved all of the personal goals that I had set for the course and I enjoyed every minute of it.  The 4:1 ratio for our course was perfect.  It was small enough to feel individualized but large enough to have a variety of goals and opinions of what to learn.  You guys are doing a great job!

Edward L.

The program was approached in a very serious manner and the guides had tremendous knowledge of the region.  They were both very thorough with their instruction of the mountaineering skills.  Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome.

Kevin C.

I thought that the course was most enjoyable and challenging. I had the opportunity to learn and practice technical climbing skills and teamwork.  Alpine Ascents did an outstanding job with logistics and course instruction.  And most importantly, I had fun.  I learned far more than I ever thought I would.

  • Windshells 101

    Imagine climbing 5,000 vertical feet in a day during mid-summer covered in bubble wrap. Sounds hot and sweaty, right?
