We encourage anyone curious about mountaineering, eager to try new things, and meet new people, to download an application from the website and get on our waiting list. We like to have a diverse group of men and women of all ages and experience on the mountain with us. Although most people join as individuals, we also encourage people to invite their friends to come along for the climb. The goal is to create a good team of climbers, working together to learn and experience the mountains that Summitclimb loves.
No previous technical mountaineering experience is required for the school, but previous camping experience is necessary. Members should be comfortable with camping and living outside for the week.
Since we are not allowed Sherpas, participants will carry their personal items and pitch in with group equipment as well. Stronger participants will carry more of the group gear than smaller members, but you should expect to carry around forty to fifty pounds in your rucksack. If you enjoy walking outside with a rucksack for three to six hours with twenty minute breaks thrown in, then you should have no problem on this trip.
