ALPINE & expedition Tuition


COVID 19 UPDATE

Despite the various restrictions put in place none of our 2020 courses or guided trips in Australia had to be cancelled due to Covid 19. While Andrew Lock Adventures cannot guarantee that 2021 departures will not be affected by Covid 19, we are happy to take reservations and to refund any deposits if Covid 19 subsequently causes the courses/trips not to run.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you've any questions and stay safe!

Each year Andrew Lock Adventures runs a series of Alpine Training Courses aimed at different skill levels, which are designed to introduce people to the alpine world and to build upon the skills of those with existing experience. The courses are conducted in the Snowy Mountains of NSW.


The two day Essential Alpine Skills course is designed for those who wish to learn how to safely enjoy the mountain environment without the need for technical mountaineering skills.

The two day Introduction to Mountaineering course is for those who wish to learn the basics of general mountain climbing or for those who have specific (non techncial) mountaineering goals, such as an ascent of Kilimanjaro, Mera Peak or Island Peak. This course includes an ascent of Mt Kosciuszko for those wanting to stay on for a third day.

The four day Advanced Mountaineering and Ice Climbing Course is for those with existing rope handling and basic rock or alpine skills, wanting to explore the next level of technical climbing both in general mountaineering and specific ice climbing.

Private Consulting and Tuition. Tailor made instruction and mentoring for yourself and/or your team, specific to your dates and goals.
