Monch vs Weissmies?

Which would be a better first time experience? Weissmies as a day trip though from the Hohass lift and back or Monch Southeast ridge? Can't do any overnights, thanks!

Rotstok Klettersteig?

Anyone know if it matters which way you do it, ie from Wart and down to Eigergletscher station, or scramble up from Eigergletscher and take the klettersteig down? Just seems like it would make more sense to walk up to Eigergletscher, and keep heading east over the Rotstok down to Alpigen? Or is the experience better coming up the via ferrata?

European Alps (Breithorn)

I am planning a trip to Europe in June 2015, with the aim of climbing the Breithorn, Gran Paradiso, and Mont Blanc.

We will be a group of about 8, and most of us have climbed Kilimanjaro and Elbrus. I know that the climbing is completely different, and requires different techniques.

I would like to know whether it is compulsory to have a guide on the Breithorn and Gran Paradiso? We will have a guide ...

Blue Mountains, Australia

This June 2014 my family rode the Skyway and Cableway above the valley floor, but time constraints (one day tour guide bus trip from Sydney) did not allow us time to walk on the valley floor. Is the valley floor for day hiking only, or are folks allowed to backpack overnight for a few days? I see they have "storm shelters" strategically placed in the valley so there must be some days with ample rain. ...

Climbing volcanoes- Central Mexico safe?

I'm planning a trip to Mt. Iztaccihuatl this November and want to find out how safe travel is now in the region. The plan is to drive from Mexico City to Amecameca, then to San Rafael to take the El Caracol trail. Have any of you been to Iztaccihuatl or Orizaba within the last year or so? If so did you have any trouble with crime or crooked authorities? Anyone had success with leaving a ...

Entry Level - Italy North/Dolomites

Hi, I'm going to Italy for a few days for a wedding, and I have just enough days so that I can slip out and go see some mountains. I'm new to the region, and I'm hoping to get to know the area a bit more, then come back for more serious trips. I won't be able to bring a lot of gear this time, so straight-forward peaks towards 3000m with no climbing and/or glacier-travel ...

Fastpacking in the Lechtal

Hi everyone,
In this very difficult alpine summer, with so much rain, I've been forced to think differently and find new ways to experience the mountains with a spirit of enthusiasm and anticipation. I don't like to experience the disappointment when bad conditions mean it's just not possible to climb. To that end, I've been going hiking a lot.

With an umbrella :).


Last weekend a ...

Everest Base Camp Advice

Hi all, I'm thinking of a trek to EBC in November but concerned it might be too crowded. Any advice? Is there less crowded alternative to the standard route? Is November a good plan - what's the recommended month? Is it possible to charge cameras & phones at the tea houses, are mosquitos a problem?

Sorry for the long list, but any advice greatly received. Thanks, Cathy
