The program is designed to adapt the technical level of the climbs to the greatest possible level of enjoyment. In the Karakorum the mountains are hard. Obviously, the main difficulty is the altitude (lack of oxygen) and its harsh climate. It is important to have good technique, as well as some experience in winter mountaineering and if you decide to come with skis, to have good technique.
The participant must meet both the physical and psychological conditions to undertake this type of expedition, since otherwise all their expectations may be frustrated. The more prepared we are, the more chances we have of reaching the summit. Normally the rate of ascent will be slow, we have to reserve strength as much as possible for the days of higher altitude.
Before the start, each participant must prepare on his own by doing training and go all the way to the mountain. All participants who want to can do one or two weekend outings with us. In this outing we will work on the most important aspects that will mark an expedition to the Karakorum: pace, cooking at altitude, setting up and supplying a camp, specific climbing techniques, acclimatization, equipment, altitude medicine…
