We are pleased to introduce Alpinistica (www.alpinistica.com) to the community of UKClimbing.
We are a team of international climbers, guides and instructors who are always busy working and playing in Patagonia, the Andes mountains, the European Alps, the Southern Alps of New Zealand, Alaska, Greenland and the Himalayas. We are drawn together by our love for the mountains, passion in teaching mountaineering skills, and commitment in supporting personal growth and helping to achieve your personal goals.
The main programs we offer at the moment is self-sufficient expedition to Mt. Aconcagua (6,959m), climb Mt. Aconcagua in alpine style and mountaineering expedition to East Greenland.
---- How are we differs from the other guiding companies out there? We do not run dozens of expeditions, a dozen to two dozen climbers per expedition, a season to maximize profitability. Nor do we mass-produce summit-taggers through the prescribed rigid formula of "success". "Success rate", as many guiding companies have prided themselves on, doesn't apply here. We simply see it a little differently.
Climbing style and the journey to the top- not the mere summit- is the yardstick of success. We believe ultimately mountain climbing is a personal experience- it shouldn't be measured by sporting performance. And winning requires surviving. Style and safety, therefore, are the twin-core focus of all our expeditions. We want to send you back to your love ones smiling and winning.
In the next couple of weeks we are going to update the website with more programs that we've been running already. That includes Patagonia Ice cap, Peru, Bolivia, customized mountaineering and climbing courses and more.
