Climb the snow peaks of the high Alps without undertaking technical climbing. You'll be able to climb summits up to 4200m altitude and learn all the essential skills of alpine mountaineering.

This week will suit mountaineers who already have a grounding in basic Alpine/Glacier skills and want to climb more peaks at PD / PD+ grades and gain high summits.

This is a great follow on from our Introductory week before tackling our Alpine Progression course.
