Summer Alpinism

I’m based in Chamonix and my front window looks directly at some of the finest mountaineering challenges in the world

I climb throughout the Western Alps (and sometimes beyond!), with special attention on the area between Chamonix and Saas at the east end of the Rhone valley. The season for alpinism is anytime from early June to late October. With climate change, the shoulder seasons of early June to mid July and early September to mid October are often better for mountaineering than the traditional midsummer period.

Whether you want to progress from Scottish winter walking to alpine snow peaks, or from rock climbing to the broad skills of alpine mountaineering, there are venues and objectives to suit everyone.
