North Carolina Climbing Guides Launch Alpine Climbing Classes

Ascent Adventure Consultants, Apex North Carolina based professional rock climbing and mountaineering guides, have launched a course that gives aspiring climbers the opportunity to realize their dreams of standing on top of a snow capped peak in a remote setting, and to develop their climbing and mountaineering skills.

Apex, NC, March 28, 2009 --( The Intro to Alpine Climbing Class is a 13 day course, that is broken up into 4 sections. It starts with a basic four day course set on Mount Baker in the North Cascades of Washington State. The first three days will be spent learning the skills needed to safely climb in a large alpine mountain environment. The course will culminate with a summit attempt of Mt. Baker on the fourth day. At the conclusion of the 4-day portion of the course, participants will be ready to head into the heart of the North Cascades and put their newly developed skills to use on some of the most stunning peaks in the lower 48 states. Each 3-day course section will find the participants attempting a new summit and learning new skills and techniques. If people are unable to do the entire 13-day course in one climbing season they are able to do part of the course then complete it the following year. At the completion of our 13-day course, participants will have the skill to safely get out into the mountains on their own.

“I believe that the Intro to Alpine Class, developed by Jason Seago, one of our professional climbing guides, will help to accomplish the goals of many people who want to climb some of the larger peaks in the lower 48 states but don’t have the skills, equipment, or ability to do it on their own. I’m honored to be able to help people accomplish their goals, realize their dreams, and improve their lives through climbing programs like this,” expresses Brandon Hensinger, founder and owner of Ascent Adventure Consultants.
