Incredible! One of the many words that can be used to describe climbing with Alpenglow
“Incredible! One of the many words that can be used to describe climbing with Alpenglow in Bolivia and the Cordillera Real. Prior to Bolivia, I had completed the Ecuador Climbing School with Alpenglow, so this was the IDEAL expedition that would take my mountaineering skills to the next level. I was fortunate enough to have three amazing guides who truly cared about teaching our team the skill sets needed to safely succeed on these more challenging peaks. I cannot recommend partnering with Alpenglow enough. By choosing Alpenglow, you will receive transparent logistics, expert guides, detailed itineraries, and truly an unforgettable experience. If you want to take your mountaineering skills to the next level, this is the trip!”
For a peak like Aconcagua, I knew that Alpenglow could deliver
“I’ve climbed internationally with Alpenglow multiple times. When attempting a peak as important as Aconcagua, I knew they would deliver. While no summit can be guaranteed. Alpenglow employs very good guides. The logistics are all top-notch. Tico was all-around an amazing guide. He helped with every detail. Can’t recommend the company enough–simply the best.”
An amazing and unforgettable experience
“Climbing Gasherbrum 2, my first 8000 meter summit, was an amazing and unforgettable experience. The Karakoram range and the culture of northern Pakistan are incredible.
The Alpenglow team, particularly the lead guide, Topo Mena, and the Sherpa crew on the expedition were world-class in every way. They enabled me to explore my limits and advance my big mountain skills, while maintaining high levels of safety.
I am stoked for my next expedition with the Alpenglow team, which is already planned.”63.0692° N, 151.0070° W
The feeling of standing on the summit of Everest/Chomolungma is almost indescribable
“The feeling of standing on the summit of Everest/Chomolungma is almost indescribable. What I can say is that the entire experience of climbing the mountain with Alpenglow Expeditions was a true pleasure. I felt taken care of and safe. There’s no better feeling than climbing a mountain, especially the world’s highest, and feeling safe doing it.”
A Brief History of KilimanjaroKilimanjaro, the majestic Roof of Africa and one of the world’s Seven Summits, stands as a sentinel in Tanzania, its snow-capped peak piercing the sky at 19,341’/5,895m above sea level. But beyond its towering presence lies a rich history held by the indigenous peoples who have long called this region home, and the intrepid adventurers who have since scaled its slopes.
The Allure of Ama DablamIt’s fair to say that Ama Dablam might be the most visually recognizable mountain in the world. There’s simply no other peak that stands so distinctly apart from its surrounding landscape, despite the fact that it’s backdropped by Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu. With its distinctive pyramid-shaped summit adorned with hanging glaciers and sheer rock faces, Ama Dablam is an iconic peak that has captured the imagination of mountaineers for decades.
From Nebraska to Peru: Griffin Mims on AlpamayoThis week, I spoke with Griffin Mims, Alpenglow’s International Coordinator and one I am grateful to call friend. I’m excited to share a piece of Griffin’s journey with you from his June 2023 expedition to Alpamayo in Peru, where he climbed a dream line to the summit of a dream peak.
