What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Aiguille du Midi



We found Kyriakos to be thorough, professional, even tempered and completely trustworthy. At no point did we notice unnecessary risk or exposure and Kyriakos’s professional manner shone through at all times. We would definately consider using his services again in the future. Frazer Gillespie (Inverness, Scotland).



I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. For one who has limited climbing skills, it was gradual and exciting.



Carlos was very professional and friendly!





It was a great experience to be guided by Pawel. He created such a warm and relaxed atmosphere, that we felt like being on a trip with a friend. Still he conveyed so much confidence and security, that we weren’t even a bit nervous about doing some mixed climbing routes, which we wouldn’t have felt able to do in the beginning. So these two days in Chamonix with Pawel led to a considerable growth of our self-confidence in our alpine skills, for which we are really grateful. I only can recommend Chamonix Vertical and Pawel as a guide and hope to experience the mountains with them again soon.
