Raleigh, NC, May 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Standing atop a snow capped, glaciated mountain peak is something that appeals to many outdoor adventure lovers and athletes. However, it is often a lack of knowledge, skill, and experience that keeps people from believing that they can accomplish these goals. This summer, July 21- August 2, 2009 , Ascent Adventure Consultants is offering a climbing trip and package that begins with the basics of alpine climbing, and ultimately leads to the successful summit of the mountains that participants have only dreamed of in the past.
Participants will be able to choose from four course lengths: 4, 7, 10, or 13 days, starting with a four-day basic course set on beautiful Mt. Baker in the North Cascades of Washington State. The first three days will be spent learning the skills to climb in a large alpine mountain environment. This portion of the course will culminate with a summit attempt of Mt. Baker on the fourth day. At the conclusion of the 4-day section of your trip, those who choose to add on extra days will be ready to head into the heart of the North Cascades and put their new skills to use on some of the most stunning peaks in the lower 48 states. Each 3-day course section will find them attempting a new summit and learning new skills and techniques.
More information can be found by visiting their alpine climbing class webpage (http://www.ascentadventure.com/2009/03/alpine-climbing-experience-package/ ).
“We love to teach people the climbing skills and techniques that they need to accomplish their dreams, and then provide them with the context to do it” says Brandon Hensinger, owner and professional climbing guide of Ascent Adventure Consultants. “To know that we can be a part of such a significant moment in someone’s life is amazing. The climbing experience that they have will impact them for the rest of their lives.”
If participants are unable to do the entire 13-day course in one climbing season, they can 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 begin to get out into the mountains on their own.
