Guided Alaska Mountaineering

True Wilderness Mountaineering

Alaska has thousands of mountains. Most of them undocumented. Many of them untouched. Few routes exist in guidebooks. These factors make it adventure mountaineering. The options range from steep and technical day-climbs in the Western Chugach to multi-day trips to the Alaska Range or a smaller, unheard of range. Email Joe and we'll talk about the right trip for you.
