Atlanta Alpine Guides
HSE has partnered with Atlanta Alpine Guides to offer the most authentic climbing expeditions in the industry. At Atlanta Alpine you live, eat, sleep, and climb like a real climber. No guide will carry your gear and no porter will serve you a 7 course meal at base camp. What Atlanta Alpine will provide is an unadulterated mountaineering experience like no other. Atlanta Alpine's expert guiding, safety as a top priority, and intimate knowledge of local surroundings will help you reach your summit.
All Atlanta Alpine trips are organized and lead by Owner/Lead Guide Scott Perkins. Scott has made numerous successful climbs of these peaks as well as many other mountains throughout North and South America. Scott is a skilled "all-arounder", equally comfortable on
technical rock climbs, frozen waterfalls and high snowcapped mountains, he
has a reputation as a climber's climber: extremely fit both mentally and
physically, he possess an inner strength that while not easily defined
becomes readily apparent to those that climb with him. Assistant guides
are experienced climbers that have climbed extensively with Scott and meet his
high standards of excellence. These guides are not just employees of
Atlanta Alpine they are the men Scott chooses to partner with on personal
climbing trips and adventures. Local assistant guides are also employed on
many climbs. They have a unique knowledge of the mountains, local culture,
and the rich climbing history of the area. The local guides that assist on
various climbs represent the very best climbers available in the area.
