The program is designed to adapt the technical level of the climbs to the highest level of enjoyment possible. 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 management, as well as some experience in winter mountaineering and if you decide to come with skis, have good technique management.
The participant must meet both physical and mental conditions to undertake this type of expedition, since otherwise all of his or her expectations may be frustrated. The more prepared we are, the more chances we will have of reaching the summit. Normally the pace 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 their own by doing training and going out into the mountains as much as possible. All participants who want can take one or two weekend outings with us. In this outing we are going to work on the most important aspects that will mark an expedition to the Karakorum: rhythm, cooking at altitude, setting up and supplying a camp, specific climbing techniques, acclimatization, equipment, altitude medicine…
