Summer Alpinism

 Some of the finest mountaineering challenges are on my doorstep

I’m based in Chamonix and my front window looks directly at Mont Blanc, the top of Europe at 4810m. From here, 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 high season for alpinism is in July and August, but you can often climb here in June and September and have the mountain to yourself!

The European Alps are more accessible than ever with cheap flights from all over the UK, and 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.

I offer a wide variety of itineraries and courses to suit all tastes. Most courses last 6 days, from Sunday to Friday.
