The Alpine Guides Technical Mountaineering Course (TMC) is an intensive introduction to alpine climbing in glaciated terrain. Spanning 9 days the TMC will kick-start your mountaineering exploits.

Your Introduction to Technical Alpine Climbing

The TMC provides a solid grounding in all alpine mountaineering skills. Previous alpine (snow & ice) climbing experience is not required. You must be fit, keen to learn new skills, and have some roped climbing ability.

The TMC is ideal:

  • For rock climbers looking for alpine climbing skills
  • As a follow-up from our basic Mountain Experience Course (MEC) ›
  • For training towards longer-term technical mountaineering objectives

Many of Australasia’s most prominent climbers (and many mountain guides) began their careers on a TMC.

We work with ALPINE GUIDES, based in Mt Cook Village.
