What Our Guests Say
I’ve done two trips guided by Rob this year and both experiences have been excellent. The first time I took my son and brother in law to climb the Gran Paradiso, unfortunately due to Covid restrictions this wasn’t possible but Rob gave us a fantastic alternative at short notice and we achieved all of our objectives. My son (16) struggled at times but Rob was really encouraging and patient with him which enabled him to gain a huge amount of confidence and a big sense of achievement. The plan was pitched at exactly the right level.

Terrific climbing with Rob and Tom. I let High Mountain Guides choose the 3 day-climbs and we went for traverse of Aiguille de l’index and Aiguilles Crochues and final day for traverse of Aiguilles Marbrees ( back in time for the best cappuccino at Torino Refuge )They encouraged me but also told me how I could improve and were also realistic when aiming for further goals.
