Introducing Summit Coach – Consulting for Aspiring Climbers


If you dream of climbing mountains but are not sure how to start or reach your next level from a Colorado 14er to Rainier, Everest or even K2, Summit Coach can help.

Summit Coach is a consulting service that helps aspiring climbers throughout the world achieve their goals through a personalized set of services based on Alan Arnette’s 20+ years of high altitude mountaineering experience and 30 years as a business executive.

Summit Coach is fully independent and does not sell gear or trips. It is not a guide service and receives no compensation from any outside organization. All advice is based on decades of personal experiences.

Is this for you?

Summit Coach was design for motivated individuals open to creating a climbing plan in order to gain knowledge and experience to ensure a success experience on the world’s high mountains.

If any of these points fit your situation you may benefit from Summit Coach:

  • Not pleased with your experience on a recent climb
  • Want to climb Everest but not sure where to start
  • Unsure on the best gear at the best price
  • Unsure about the best way to gain experience to have a successful Big Mountain experience
  • Want to be in the best shape possible for your climb but unsure how to start
  • All guide services seem similar and are not sure who you can trust
  • Is the lowest price guide service safe?

Please visit the Summit Coach website  to review the four levels, and pricing to meet most any budget.

  1. This is unique offering for mountaineers that want to move their climbing activities up to the next level (or up several levels!), but might be unsure exactly how to make their dreams come true. Alan, the broad and deep wealth of experience that you have accumulated on so many big mountains around the world makes you an excellent Summit Coach to help aspiring climbers.
