Alpine Ascents International


Putting people on the summit of Everest, Aconcagua, and the Seven Summits is as much a priority for Alpine Ascents as teaching such mountaineering basics as rope and belay techniques, self arrest, rappelling, and glacier travel. Its schools in Alaska, Washington, and Patagonia focus on mountaineering, ice climbing, and rock climbing. Advanced clients can set sights on mountaintops nearly anywhere in the world.
