Mountaineering

Technical scale: Mountaineering skills required for our expeditions, alpine tours and demanding trekking.
 
1 - easy
2 - quite difficult
3 - difficult
4 - very difficult
5 - extreme
 
Mountaineering is the underlying ability to climb any mountain. On classic expeditions, many exposed areas are secured.
 

1 - easy / simple

"Easy" on expedition already includes mountaineering in alpine terrain or on glaciers up to grad ZS/AD "quite difficult" according to alpine scale. Exposed areas and crevasses are fixed if possible. Basic knowledge in handling ice axe / crampons and rope is required.

2 - quite difficult

Route with extensive passages in the grad ZS/AD: Safe handling with an ice ax, crampons and rope are required. Exposed places or crevasses are fixed if possible or walked in rope team.

3 - difficult

Persistent suspended passages must be managed. These will be insured if possible. Mountaineering on the alpine scale S/D "difficult" with exposed climbing passages (up to IV. UIAA degree). Good use of crampons and rope is required, as well as safe climbing in combined terrain.
 

4 - very demanding

Exposed and demanding route. The difficulties range up to the alpine scale SS/TD "very difficult" and are mostly insured. Dealing with fixed rope and climbing clamps, increased demands on climbing technique, physical conditions and experience are required, as are all the demands of "difficult" mountaineering.
 

5 - extreme

Very demanding mountaineering, even without the possibilities of protection. The terrain will rarely exceed the alpine difficulty SS/TD, but can reach the requirements of the alpine scale AS/ES "extremely difficult". Above-average ability and a lot of experience in alpine mountaineering are expected.
 
Danger Warning: For safety reasons, your personal skills and sufficient experience are required for each expedition and ascent (specific description under Information / Requirements).

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).

1 - Active Tour
Easy treks to EBC or on top of Kilimanjaro. You should be an active person.
 
2 - Sportive Tour
More demanding treks, simple climbs, like the climb of Elbrus. You should be a sportive person regularly exercising (at least 2-3x per week).
 
3 - Demanding Trek / Expedition
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.
 
4 - High Endurance - Expedition
To climb Everest (with oxygen-support) or some of the "easier" 8000m peaks you need a strong endurance. You should train specifically at least 4-5x per week.
 
5 - Very high Endurance - Expedition
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

Requirements: Altitude experience from several expeditions and an above-average physical condition are necessary.
 
  • 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.
 
Technical requirements: The greatest difficulties on the three steep steps are defused by means of fixed ropes (Khumbu Ice Fall, Hillary step). Rope-free access to 45° steep snow and firn flanks and rock climbing up to UIAA2 must nevertheless be mastered absolutely safely. In particular, securing on the fixed rope with ascenders and abseiling techniques must be mastered absolutely safely (with thick gloves!).
 
Physical Fitness: Stages of several days must be completed and you must be able to assess your strength and reserves well. During the night at the last camp at South Col, 8,000m (26,247 ft) and during the summit ascent temperatures around -40°C plus wind-chill-factor can be expected. For the summit day, an ascent of about 8-12 hours followed by a descent of 3-6 hours must be completed.
 
Lack of comfort: We climb constantly at high altitude, still health and fitness must be maintained. We will help you with this. A good personal organization and preparation are necessary to stay healthy and fit during the expedition.
 
Danger - Warning: Each participant takes part in this expedition independently and at their own risk. The extreme altitude and cold bring with it extremely subjective (due to the lack of oxygen) and objective (weather changes, cold, etc.) dangers! Rescue possibilities are extremely limited.

"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. "

Kathmandu - hotel upgrades

In Kathmandu, there are countless hotels now ( since the tourist boom of the last 5 years) in all price ranges. We choose a simple hotel at the edge of Thamel for our expeditions. The rooms are simple but clean, there is a simple breakfast. For lunch and dinner, there is a wide range of restaurants in the nearby area, offering great variety.

Personal Sherpa - Guide

Your private Sherpa will help you with the transport of your personal equipment, such as oxygen, sleeping bag, camera and will climb the mountain as a guide. We only use Sherpas who have climbed Mount Everest several times, have experience in dealing with guests and are highly loyal.
 
On Everest, our Sherpa carries 10kg of your personal equipment. The package contains the Sherpa's personal equipment including oxygen for a full summit attempt. He will also help you set up camp, cook and take care of you during the whole Everest ascent.
 
Only material transport: porters can also be booked together with other participants (1/3 share, approx. 3-4kg): then of course cheaper, but the function of the "mountain guide" with personal care can then no longer be fulfilled.
