Topic - What if you don't know what to do in the Alps

paul29uk on 14 Jun 2013
I want to go the the alps next summer, I have been before for a couple of weeks and i've also been to Ecuador doing PD style snow plods, but I think now i'd like to do something a bit more meaty, not necessarily high, not necessarily epic in length, just something that is what I am looking to get stuck into. Obviously I would need a guide as I dont' really have friends into this stuff, but do you think I can hire a guide and say for example "I want to learn a bit of mixed stuff, do some rock climbing and improve my ice technique" would you think a guide would want a client this flexible, or prefer someone who says "I want to do Mt. Blanc".

Thoughts? I just don't want to come back feeling that I wanted more!

And how do I get to find a guide with this in mind?! Looking to spend a few weeks in Scotland the next winter season with similar in mind.
