Can anyone recommend a good site to find partners or general climbing info for Japan? I'm trying to climb Kita Dake this May 19-24. It's the highest peak in Japanese Alps, which supposedly features some long easy 5th class ridge routes to the summit.
Looks like a great trip. It's always nice to see some wildflowers and animals. Back in May, I was able to make the summit of Kitadake but no inspiring views of Fuji. Heck, I was lucky to see 100m. Poor weather conditions seems to be the theme for my climbing activity in 2011.
