Safety

We follow the IFMGA requirements, under which the number of participants should be a maximum of three persons per guide. We will also carry out training with alpine climbing gear before the summit day to ensure that we safely traverse glaciers and pass the key route sections. All the gear we use is certified by UIAA.

Acclimatization

Smooth adaptation to high altitudes is a cornerstone of any successful ascent. The acclimatization plan comprises four stages: 1) an overnight stay in Stepantsminda (1,750 m) for initial acclimatization; 2) an overnight stay in the first camp at 3,000 m; 3) an overnight stay in the base camp at 3,670 m; 4) a radial hike to 4,050–4,100 m with a descent to the base camp the same day.

We will carry backpacks for a maximum of four hours a day. The rest of the time will be dedicated to recovery and adaptation to a new altitude threshold. And of course, we will have a reserve day in case of inclement weather or if more rest/ better acclimatization is needed.

Organization

We will take care of all arrangements. We will organize all private transfers throughout the programme, arrange accommodation in Stepantsminda, provide you with comfortable tents and full three meals a day during the climbing expedition, and transport all food and group gear by horse all the way to the final base camp.
