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.

Summit of the #Eiger this morning with Sarah.

Good conditions on the south ridge from the Monchjoch Hut, and we had the top to ourselves. Being patient with the weather paid off in the end. ☀️

Lots of teams on the other nearby classics: Monch, Jungfrau, Fisherhorn etc

Eiger plans on hold for 24 hours. Waiting for the snow to burn off a bit. Instead we traversed the Monch, via a verglas encrusted SW ridge.

Now resting before tomorrow’s early start for the Eiger south ridge.

Our #MontBlanc team were successful on the Grand Paradiso yesterday. Currently on route back to Chamonix.

Climbing the Index with Sarah this morning. A nice mellow day after an especially long day on Monte Viso’s east ridge a couple of days ago.

Pretty busy on the route today, we did about a million short pitches for practice and to give the other teams some room.

A rest day tomorrow, and then the Eiger 👍🏔
