The remote ranges of Alaska and British Columbia offer some of the most rewarding expedition climbing objectives in the world
In addition to well-known peaks like Denali (Mount McKinley), the highest peak in North America, this region is home to many less well-known ranges and peaks such as Mt. St. Elias and Mt. Waddington.
You will find ancient forests, cascading waterfalls, hundreds of glaciers, pristine alpine lakes and meadows, and wildlife that include wolves, bears, marmots, mountain goats, and a variety of birds. Because of its rugged approaches, exceptional alpine terrain, and unrivaled scenery, it is the premiere training ground for climbers in North America.
Many of the popular climbing venues in the U.S. only allow a handful of guide services to legally operate. Therefore if we cannot secure our own permit to guide in a specific venue, we will work through one of the local concession holders as a “guest guide.” In doing so, we can offer trips legally to some incredible places that are often very difficult for independent guides to gain access to:
