I offer guiding throughout the Alps from a base in the Chamonix valley. Rather than courses or specific peaks I specialise in personalised guiding for individuals and very small groups.
Throughout the summer I help clients to realise a wide range of ambitions from the classic and most famous alpine peaks, some of the prized and more challenging 4000m summits and Grande Courses, as well as simply delivering productive alpine climbing trips maximising your valuable time in the mountains.
Recent guided ascents have taken me all around the Alps from the Engadine and Bregalia to the Blumlisalps. Also peaks throughout the Oberland and popular Valais region including the Eiger and Matterhorn. And of course the Mt Blanc range, as well as many fantastic lesser known areas in between.
Clients have enjoyed alpine rock climbing on the granite of Grimsel, Furka and Salbit areas. The limestone walls of Englehorner and Aravis, and many of the fantastic long rock routes in and around Chamonix
I work for a “per day” fee, normally on a 5 or 6 day basis. For longer periods I’ll normally factor in a day off to allow for weather, conditions and rest! This flexible approach works well, and often sees goals achieved rather than missed.
I’d be pleased to discuss any alpine ambitions you may have, and am normally working out my schedule for the summer season many months in advance. This also allows you time to act on any advice with regards preparation to help us achieve your goals.
