Rock & Ice Climbing

Alaska Mountain Guides & Climbing School Inc. is dedicated to developing confident, competent climbers. Using a “hands-on” approach to learning, we introduce new rock & ice climbing skills and put them to use on climbs that develop individual skill and technique. We have programs for everyone ranging from those who want a fun initial climbing experience, to those seeking serious expedition skills appropriate for the most demanding high altitude climbs. We also offer solid professional training courses. Our small groups and low student-to-instructor ratio help us meet individual expectations, and help guests progress as quickly as their ambition and ability allow on rock or ice. No Previous experience is required for any of these rock & ice climbing courses.
