      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

which guide service?

Recommended Posts

Could I have some opinions on the different guide services that are offered on Denali climbs. I'm trying to decide who to go with for next season. Thanks.

I would also check out American Alpine Institute

 

http://www.aai.cc

 

Several friend have worked for them.

 

American Alpine Institute should not be confused with Alpine Ascents which also run trips. My observations of Alpine Ascents operation is rather industrial.

funny - i would say the opposite of scaredsilly - my experience is alpine ascents is smaller denali groups and more personal. alpine institute more "industrial". although not in a kmfdm, nitzer ebb, skinny puppy kind of way.

I went with Alpine Ascents last May (and other trips with them before that) and would highly recommend them. I think the individual guides are as important as the companies themselves...luckily I always had good guides with them.
