Stamina - Endurance
A mountain athlete needs endurance above any other specific fitness skill. Cardiovascular fitness is of course always subject to the movement (as climbing rocks or steep ice, you will not be able to transfer your triathlete or running fitness to mountains without being solid in the required mountaineering skills).
Easy treks to EBC or on top of Kilimanjaro. You should be an active person.
More demanding treks, simple climbs, like the climb of Elbrus. You should be a sportive person regularly exercising (at least 2-3x per week).
Very demanding treks like to the top of Aconcagua, or expeditions at the physical lower level like Ama Dablam. You should be an endurance athlete wit mountaineering experience. You should train endurance at least 3x/week.
Some of our special self-supported 8000m+ peak climbs as on Makalu, or to climb Everest (without oxygen-support) fit into this category. Your endurance should be near the level of a professional mountain athlete.

Everest Nepal - Requirements
- Full-service-members: You should have 7000 m+ / 23'000 ft+ high-altitude experience and be an independent mountaineer (alpine tours at least AD according to UIAA scale), have experienced camping ad cooking in the wintry conditions. Ice techniques, glacier travel with crampons, and alpine climbing techniques er needed. You should have knowledge of crevasse rescue techniques and of frostbite symptoms, high altitude sicknesses, and their basic treatment.
- Less experienced, you can only join with a 1:1 guide and personal training to climb Mount Everest should be considered.
- Basic-members: To climb Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen and Sherpa support, you should have successfully climbed at least one 8000m+ peak in a similar style.
"I have climbed with SummitClimb on three expeditions now (Cho Oyu, Everest and Dhaulagiri) and I can safely say that I love them. Basically what I find the main difference being that the top end companies hold your hand far too much. With Summit, you can climb on your own or if you dont feel comfortable, with someone else. Obviously the ability to climb alone will depend on your own ability, confidence and level or expertise etc. As it says on the website, summitclimb is set up for climbers more then novices although to go with them as a novice is no problem at all either. But generally speaking with Summit a lot of the expedition members have a good mountaineering knowledge allowing also to that freedom of movement. At least that is my experience with them. "
