Mexico Advice

Hi! My friends and I are looking into a quick trip to Mexico to climb Pico de Fraile, Itza and just a quick jaunt up Arista de Humbolt. We are all experienced mountaineers and climbers.

Are their any inexpensive services that will work ...

Trying to get a straight answer out of the rental car companies is hard!

If I can't can anyone suggest an ...

Hello, I'm looking for advice on how to climb Mont Blanc as a total beginner. I do not have the money to pay for a guided trip, nor am I able to spend weeks practicing climbing other peaks in the surrounding mountains.

My sister and I are pllanning a Trip to Ecuador. We have minimal mountaineering experience but lots of hiking and canoeing experience. My understanding is that Ecuador has some of the less technical mountains so it's a good place to get started.

We're looking for a guide. So far everything has pointed to Seirra Nevada Expeditions being really good (and substantially cheaper than some of the companies with more online reviews). However, all the info ...
