Private Guiding…

At Vertical Frontiers we specialise in private guiding on tailor-made trips.
In fact, 80% of our guests are repeat clients working through a series of Alpine Climbs or Ski trips with our guides.

There are many benefits of hiring a private guide rather than joining a group.

The ability to pick the best mountain or route for your ambitions taking into account the weather and conditions at that time is a huge advantage compared with being tied into a set program.

The benefits of joining a group are both social and economic. It is cheaper, and climbing or skiing with a group can be great fun. You always need to be aware that we will go at the pace of the slowest member and for some ascents, if one person needs to turn around then the whole group must turn around also.

Many Alpine Climbs and some ski mountaineering routes that are long, technical (or both) often need to be guided on a 1:1 ratio.

Sometimes we team people up for the initial training days, before bringing in extra “summit guides” for the final ascent.

All of our “open trips” for both mountaineering and ski touring can be booked as a private trip. For a completely bespoke trip or to chat through some ideas don’t hesitate to contact us.

Up early to catch the frozen snow, and a bonus sunrise on the 4327m Nadelhorn.

Perfect conditions, and super quiet. We’re back here on the 30th August if anyone’s keen....?

All six of us to the top of #montblanc yesterday - great weather and conditions.

We even hung out at the summit for a while, a rare treat!

Thanks also to @claphamski for guiding.

Our next Mont Blanc trip starts today with the Grand Paradiso. Let’s hope this weather lasts 🤞

Managed to sneak onto the summit of the Grand Paradiso between two days of unsettled and stormy weather.

A little trail breaking was required. All good prep for #montblanc - we’re heading that way tomorrow.
