Who is this for?

Motivated individuals seeking to arrive at their mountain fully prepared, informed, and enabled to perform at their maximum physical and mental potential. With expeditions now costing from $8,000 to $80,000, it’s a smart investment to enable you to do your best on your climb.

If any of these points fit your situation you may benefit from Summit Coach:

  • Not pleased with your experience on a recent climb
  • Want to climb a 7,000 or 8,000-meter peak but are not sure where to start
  • Unsure of how to find the best gear at the best price
  • How to get your family on the same page to support your ambitions
  • Want to be in the best shape possible for your climb but unsure how to start
  • All guide services seem similar and are not sure who you can trust
  • Is the lowest price guide service safe?

Recommendations:

  • Trek: best for a short term goal of one climb coming up
  • Base Camp: if you are looking out a year and will do a couple of climbs to prepare for that big one
  • High Camp: not sure of your plans but need help to create a plan that will prepare you to go to the next level
  • Summit: looking at climbing an 8000-meter peak like Everest one day but are not ready today and not sure what it will take
  • 7 Summits: for those starting or even completing their 7 Summits quest, this is a full-service, unlimited engagement that will maximize your potential to achieve all the summits.
