Contact Nicholas Smith
Saturday 24 August 2019
Based in the Saas Valley,  Switzerland at Hotel Schönblick and the campsite opposite, this meet is aimed primarily at Aspirant members in the 1st or 2nd Alpine season. 
 
The meet has 18 places, and starts with two days spent developing alpine techniques with three mountain guides, including crevasse rescue and moving together, led by AC member Owen Samuel. 
 
The Saas valley is flanked by numerous 4000m peaks with dozens of mixed climbs in the lower grades, and is blessed with excellent transport links.
