Hi all 

Wasn't sure where to stick this but really fancy going to Chamonix (or any other alpine town) and having a go at learning to climb big(ger) walls / multi pitch stuff (trad or sport) in the alps.

Can anyone recommend guides / companies that are worth speaking to about this. 

cheers

Maybe try googling Alpine Courses?Companies like ISM (to pick one at random) offer a large variety at all levels, as well as individually guided tours (on which you won't learn nearly as much as on a course).

Have a chat with Ben Bradford (in English as from the UK) via http://verticalfrontiers.com/

Cheers McHeath did have a look but there seemed so many it’s hard to know who’s good or not so always like recommendations

If you actually want to learn how to climb in the Alps rather than simply get dragged up some routes I'd strongly suggest you find a suitable course or a British guide in advance and explain what you want to achieve rather than simply hiring a guide locally.

I can recommend Will Sim. One of the best young Alpinists and excellent company.
