    Hey Happy hikers,

    I have hired two more instructors for this trip so a ratio of 1:4


    Please bear in mind that this is a tough trip for fit experienced hikers, who are used to long days out 10hrs + it could be very cold so reading the kit list is essential. Ice axe is provided other kit e.g. crampons can be hired see kit list.

    If you're not sure the trip is for you or you have an questions, please message or phone me[masked]

    Looking forward to a great adventure

    Gary
