There comes a time in an alpinist apprenticeship, that mentoring is essential. For most this arrives by accident, a chance meeting and suddenly the learning begins.

For me? Well, I have been fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time. Mistaken by Eric Langmuir in the International youth hostel in Vancouver as his taxi driver, and then some months later while being invited to dinner at his house he introduced me to Alan Dennis, an avalanche expert from Canada. Both these individuals changed my view on mountaineering and subsequently my life. Until this point, I was rather traditional, after that everything changed. Some changes so subtle I doubt a casual onlooker would see those changes, but fundamental all the same.

At Alpine Dragons, we remove the chance meeting and boldly stand in your way and say; “we are here” if the match is right the learning begins, furthering and deepening your knowledge.

Fundamentally it’s not just about the moves, the clothes, the hard skills, it’s about you.

We go deeper, beyond words, to a place that needs to be experienced.
