Rapid Ascent™ is an innovative program for safer, faster climbing. Alpenglow invented it—and we do it best.
Rapid Ascent™ is a unique pre-acclimatization program developed by Alpenglow Expeditions. Other companies have attempted to replicate it but with lesser results. Over the past decade, we’ve perfected our regimen, which combines cutting-edge hypoxic training techniques with precise logistics and small team sizes to reliably increase chances of summit success. Rapid Ascent™ teams spend 30 to 50% less time away from home and arrive at base camp well-rested, energized, and prepared to take full advantage of every weather window.
