Technical skills: Hiking


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.

Lakpa Ri - Tibet 2024

Since Aug. 30, 2023: No more restrictions regarding Covid-19 for entry to China.

Lakpa Ri - Participation

Participation: The ascent to the summit of Lakpa Ri / Nordcols is carried out in independent, self-reliant rope teams under the guidance of the expedition leader. There is no guiding, but we offer a refresher course in glaciated routes at the 2nd base camp, so this expedition is a good introduction to high-altitude mountaineering. A good level of fitness is required for the ascent.

Technical requirements: All exposed and steep sections of the ascent are secured with fixed ropes by the leader and Sherpas. You should already be able to walk safely on crampons.

Physical requirements: In addition to a very good physical condition and mental strength, the effects of altitude on the body must be taken into account on this expedition. We attach great importance to correct acclimatization and altitude tactics and provide a very experienced high-altitude mountaineer as expedition leader!

Personal equipment: In addition to complete mountain clothing, a warm expedition sleeping bag down to - 20° C comfort range and very warm expedition mountain boots are part of the basic equipment.
