"High Ex" is what Aiglonians call the most challenging form of expedition – that undertaken high in the mountains.
High Ex will usually involve technical skills, which will have been fully tutored in advance and will be carefully supervised when in the mountains. Aiglon employs a number of qualified specialist mountain guides. Rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier travel, and the use of gear such as crampons, ice axes, and carabiners are all standard on High Ex.
As a reward for their efforts, our students get to stand on mountain summits; and the confidence and self-knowledge acquired on High Ex stands them in good stead for the rest of their lives.
