Mountaineering is a journey. We realize that you don’t just wake up one day ready to climb Denali, just because you want to. It takes time and experience to develop the requisite skills to move efficiently and safely through varying terrain and conditions at high altitude. That’s why we at AWE offer everything from Stepping Stone Experiences and Basecamp Clinics to High Camp Adventures and Peak Expeditions.
Stepping Stone Experiences are incredible adventures in their own right and also help get you ready for bigger mountain objectives.
Basecamp Clinics are mountaineering-specific instructional climbs and skill building clinics on introductory peaks.
High Camp Adventures range from advanced-level mountaineering courses to easy extreme altitude expeditions.
Peak Expeditions are the pinnacle of AWE’s experience: big, hard, multi-week extreme high altitude mountain expeditions in far-out places.
All of AWE’s climbs and adventures focus on skill-building, balanced decision-making, and a gradual progression towards self-sufficiency in the big mountain realm. Come join us for an unforgettable time in the backcountry and new friendships that will last far beyond the mountain.
