How To Choose the Best Climb. Altitude, Difficulty, Time, Cost.
Today's newsletter is all about 7,000 metre / 23,000 foot high peaks, less expensive and quicker than 8,000 metre peaks.
Last week's newsletter featured 8,000 metre peaks. Next week we are highlighting the 6,000 metre "trekking peaks", and after that, the famous "base camp treks".Our 7,000 metre expeditions feature expert British, American, and European leaders, helpful Sherpas, quality climbing gear, safety equipment, and delicious food. We do lots of training on cliffs and glaciers around basecamp before making the ascent.
7000m peaks are cheaper and faster because oxygen is not used during the climb (but is carried as an emergency precaution), not as much fixed rope, fewer high camps, and not as many rest days are needed.
Baruntse : October: Nepal's Easiest 7000 metre Peak. Excellent for Novices and Advanced Mountaineers also. Three Peaks for the Price of One. Gorgeous Remote Grand Circle Traverse Near Everest. Easy but big snow climb in a remote area of Nepal near Everest. Includes a warm-up training climb on 6000 metre Mera Trekking Peak. After more rope training on glaciers near base camp, climb the snowy ridges to Baruntse summit, cross over the famous high Amphu Labtsa pass to finish our grand-circle traverse in the beautiful and famous Khumbu Valley with celebratory chocolate cake and cappuccino! Leader Dan Mazur has climbed it 5 times with strong Sherpas and safety ropes.
Ama Dablam : November: Asia's Most Famous, Rock, Snow and Mixed Climb. Matterhorn of the Himalaya. High quality easy rock climbing on good granite with excellent fixed ropes. Climbing grade is mostly rock "scrambling". Only one pitch is 12 m / 40 ft of UIAA French 4, British Severe, USA 5.6, Aus 14. Superb views of Everest. The upper mountain has mixed snow climbing. We do rock and rope training on fun cliffs at grassy warm basecamp with no glacier and no icefall. Very quick and beautiful green trek in through Sherpa villages. Leader Dan Mazur has summited 5 times with expert Sherpas and well fixed lines.
Aconcagua : December, January, and February: One of the famous 7-Summits. The highest peak in the Southern Hemisphere. Walking on gravel trails to the summit, where there is very little snow. This is the world's easiest, fastest 7,000m, 23,000 ft peak.
