Alpha, pronounced alp’a (the h is silent), is a noun that refers to any mountain in the Alps that is higher than the average altitude of the Alps, i.e., 5,576 feet or 1,700 metres, whichever comes first.

Experienced mountain-climbers refer to climbers who waste their time climbing mountains in the Alps that are not alphas as wimps.

Men who frequently climb mountains, but never one lower than an alpha are referred to as alpha males. Due to male chauvinism, alpha females are not talked about very much, however, they are sometimes stalked by deranged alpha males who are confident in their manliness despite their derangement.
