In February 2016 I am leading an expedition to Aconcagua 6962m, in Argentina. This expedition will be my 11th trip guiding on the mountain and I am super excited to head back there. I actually used to live in Mendoza which is the city closest to the mountain and I have spend three years living, climbing and guiding in South America. I speak Spanish and have lots of friends and connections on the mountain and have chosen a route that takes in all sides of the mountain. This is a non technical expedition to high altitude.

Dates ex Mendoza: 1st-23rd February 2016 Group size: 4 to 7 team members

In April 2016 I am leading an expedition back to Nepal to Mera Peak 6476m. Mera incorporates climbing on a glacier at moderate to high altitude and is away from the busy Everest trail. It offers some of the best views in the Himalaya and is a great introduction to high Himalayan climbing.

Heading to the summit offers an amazing view to Everest, Nupse, Lhotse and even to Makalu.

Blue Mountains Expedition Training


Posted on Monday 28th September, 2015

ATTENTION: CURRENT EXPEDITION TRAINING COURSE INFORMATION AND DATES CAN NOW BE FOUND ON MY BUSINESS PAGE: alliepepperadventures.com.au

Now that the snow is disappearing and the weather is getting warmer, I am starting to run expedition training courses here in the beautiful Blue Mountains. I have been training outdoor leaders and guiding people on adventures here since 1999 so I am very excited to be running these courses for my own business and sharing the skills I am passionate about. Whether you are just interested in gaining more technical skills before you head off on an overseas adventure or want some basic rescue training for your vertical adventures, these courses are for you! The more time you have working with ropes and exposure on cliff edges, the more confident you will feel on a high mountain expedition or adventure. I believe it is important to train these technical skills in a more comfortable and controlled environment prior to heading to a cold, unpredictable and perhaps high altitude environment. The better prepared, not just physically but mentally and technically, you are for your adventure, the greater the chance of success.
