The Alps provide fantastic mountaineering opportunities and challenges. The blend of glacier, crag, snow and rock, all on a grand scale draw people back year on year. I organise bespoke courses and guiding for individuals and small groups and I work with you to tailor your trip so you get just what you want. Many people climb with me 1:1 or 1:2 in the Alps. If you come by yourself we have complete flexibility in our objectives. If you are a couple or pair you can split my fee between 2 people making it very economical without too much restriction on choice of route. We can cater for larger groups on easier peaks and glacier treks, or if necessary I can arrange additional guides to work with us.
I like to travel throughout the Alps at all times of the year from our base near Chamonix. The summer alpine mountaineering season is normally from June to September, but more and more people are now choosing to visit the Alps in the spring and summer inter-seasons, or climbing in winter when most other folk are skiing. What better way to beat summer heatwaves and increased levels of stone fall than by climbing out of season when conditions can be better and you can be far more certain of finding peace and solitude?
I have the flexibility to move around to find the best routes, conditions and weather for you. My alpine mountaineering is complemented with crag climbing, alpine rock climbing, ice climbing and skiing. Check out my galleries and social media to see the variety of routes we can achieve.
I was based near Saas Grund for 16 years, so I have particular knowledge of the Saas Valley and the surrounding area, including Zermatt. I can offer you far more than the regular trade routes, and take you on some of the more interesting climbs this region has to offer.
Summer alpinism is at the heart of my professional mountaineering. Over the years I have climbed the majority of the 4000 metre peaks as a guide, and of course, Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and the Eiger are popular objectives; as is the Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route on foot and on ski. However I particularly enjoy seeking out the less frequented areas and climbs that the Alps have to offer, and I’ve been lucky enough to have had opportunities to explore far and wide. In particular I have many years’ experience of the Eastern Alps including several trips to the Stubai and Oetztal and also visits to the Grossglockner, Grauspitz (Liechtenstein), Zillertal and Ortler Alps. These destinations are ideal for people who would like to enjoy luxury mountain huts and have a less strenuous holiday. I particularly enjoy exploring esoteric corners of the popular alpine regions that can be easily accessed in a short break from the UK, and I will seek to find routes that are off the beaten track, especially in peak season.
