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.

Participation - Baltoro K2 Trek

General: Good physical fitness and health are required for participation in this trip. You need to prepare for partly very simple conditions in rural Pakistan and possibly tough weather conditions during the trek.
 
Technical requirements: The route follows a good donkey and porter path over glacial terrain to K2 base camp. You should be able to safely walk over rocky and partly icy-snowy paths. The Gongogoro La ascent follows easy alpine terrain that requires the use of crampons and at some places will be fixed with ropes by the local mountain guides.
 
Physical requirements: The distances from camp to camp are moderate, at an average speed require 4-6 hours of walking, max. 8-10 hours for the longest stage, and for the traverse of Gondogoro La.
 
Pastore Peak Climb: For the optional 6000m peak ascent a very good physical condition is necessary and experience in alpine tours.
