Cordillera Blanca for Beginners


A friend and I will be traveling to Huaraz at the end of July and spending around 2 weeks in the Cordillera Blanca. We've been doing quite a bit of research on mountains in the region, and would like to do our first real climb while we're there. We have no mountaineering experience, so we will go with a guide and choose a route that is not technically difficult. However, we are both distance ...

Breche de Roland, Pyrenees

Hi everybody. I am new to this Forum. I will go to Toulouse, FR for a while and would like to do some hikes in the Pyrenees. Especially Breche De Roland, starting from Cirque de Gavarnie. I would like to do it in Spring, just to avoid big crowds.
Is there anybody who hiked there recently and could share a trip report, and potential dangers, especially up in the snowfields?
Tourist information says the trail ...

Bolivia (Condoriri, Illimani, Huayna Potosi) info

I am planning an unguided trip to Bolivia for spring/summer 2018. I would appreciate the opportunity to hear from anyone who has done a similar trip in the last few years. We are planning to try some peaks (mostly standard routes) in the Condoriri group and either Illimani or Huayna Potosi. If you would be willing to share logistical, weather, gear, and route information, please send me a message. Thanks.

Hello everyone,

I'm a normal trekker who has done quite a lot of mountains in the Pyrenees and with scrambling experience, but I don't climb, although I have no fear of cliffs. This summer I wanted to climb the Watzmann, approximately on the middle of June, but I have checked and the ridge is better to do it without snow or ice. Anyone knows what are the snow conditions of the Watzmann around middle June? ...

Climb Mulhacen in Spain from Capileira

1. I understand the road from Capileira to Hoya del Portillo is not a good road. Can a 2-wheel-drive car be able to go from Capileira to Hoya del Portillo?
2. How long does it take to walk from Hoya del Portillo to the summit of Mulhacen
3. How long does it take to walk from Trevelez to the summit of Mulhacen
Thank you for looking into my questions.

Lost ski near summit ridge of Pizzo Tresero (Italy)

Hello everybody,
On Monday April 24th, I was climbing with a group of people and a guide, from Ref. Forni to the summit of Pizzo Tresero on skis.
A few meters below the summit ridge, I lost a ski!

There was a thick fog that day, so when my ski went straight down, it quickly disappeared.
According to my guide, it went down the north face in the direction of the Vedretta di Cerena.
Because ...

Best locations for trekking late May?

I'm looking for trekking suggestions in the Western European time zone or the western hemisphere in the last week of May. I've got a week to figure out where I want to go because I learned last week I'd be able to take a couple of weeks off of work.

I was thinking about Jotunheimen in Norway because of ease of access, relative safety of the country, clean water along with lots of hikeable summits ...

Pik Lenin Routes

Just wondering if anyone has any credible information about routes up Pik Lenin?
Are there any decent alternatives to the Razdelnaya Route, that have decent route information and info?
Not looking for anything too tech, just another "safe" climbing route that might have less avalanche risks etc.
Any one who has climbed it got any info?
Thanks in advance!
