Alpine climbing

Summer climbing in the Alps


I have spent many seasons Alpine climbing, and a several years living year round in the Chamonix valley, and working full time as a Guide from there. I have guided all over the Alps from Mont Blanc to the Dolomites.  The ‘normal’ summer season is from mid June to mid September, as this is when most of the mountain refuges are open and the mountains are purged of the winter snow. During this period I am available for  private guiding, with the emphasis mainly on private groups or individuals looking for adventures off the beaten track. I can cater for all levels of guided Alpine mountaineering and climbing, ranging from Alpine rock climbing and introductory Alpine climbing, to classic 4000m summits and more technical peaks.

I’m also very happy teaching or coaching skills of Alpinism,  so that you can build your experience and discover Alpine peaks by yourself.

It is also possible to have some fun out of season Alpine adventures, mainly in mid-Autumn.  With a bit more effort to combat slightly colder temperatures, and many huts and lifts being closed, often good periods of settled weather can be enjoyed at this time.  Perhaps with the rising temperatures this could be the shape of things to come!
