ALPINE & expedition Tuition


COVID 19 UPDATE

With the predicted easing of current restrictions it appears that NSW National Parks will allow recreation and business activities to take place recommencing June 2020. While Andrew Lock Adventures cannot guarantee any departures yet, we are happy to take reservations, pending confirmation of the easing of those restrictions. Any deposits taken will happily be refunded in full if Covid 19 causes the courses not to run. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you've any questions.

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.
