For the summer of 2014 we're nearly fully booked, but there are still some weeks available from mid September onwards. Even into October, conditions can be good in the Alps with the autumn bringing quiet mountains and colder conditions. For the peak period of July and August 2014 we recommend Martin Moran's excellent range of Evolene-based courses.
The 2015 programme will be advertised soon, with a full list of new guided climbing courses in the Alps and further afield. Contact us at: email@example.com for more information.

We'll refresh basic skills, then aim to move on to more technical ground, climbing up to AD or maybe D grade routes. Rock, ice or mixed, you'll be climbing major lines on famous and beautiful Alpine peaks.Cost: Contact us for more details.Ratio (Clients:Guides): 2:1
Early season is prime time for good conditions with well consolidated spring snow plastered on to the classic Alpine North Faces. Climbing with crampons and 2 axes, the "fly on the wall" feeling of exposure on a big alpine face is hard to forget!
