Client alpine climbing in the high sierra with professional mountain guides

California’s High Sierra is Alpenglow’s favorite mountain range to climb in.

Near-endless terrain means the area is devoid of crowds, offering a unique sense of remoteness. With 14,000′ mountain peaks of impeccable granite and snow covered entrances thrusting into the sky, alpine climbing in the High Sierra has become a sacred practice to those who annually venture into its reaches. Stable weather through the summer months virtually guarantee ideal climbing temperatures during the day, while the nights bring just a little nip to make things cozy.
