SWS is proud of our long history of helping everyone we can to achieve their goals.  Includes assisting adaptive climbers to find their way to the top.  Adaptive climbers might consist of blind, amputee, or climbers with T.B.I. or other special considerations.  For almost a decade we have been helping climbers with these, and other challenges reach their summit.

SWS has developed its own internal adaptive training system to prepare guides to work with a climber with special needs.   Our training based on work done thru the PSIA, AASI, and other professional programs that we have been able to apply to mountain guiding.  We have spent the last three decades refining our programs for the best success possible.

If you or someone you know wants to climb and requires an adaptive guide, please call our office - 888.797.6867 - and discuss with Tim, JB or Neil to find how we can help you.
