High Altitude Trekking

Any high altitude mountain climb is an endeavor that is both physically and mentally demanding. It requires top physical fitness, mental fortitude and patience, with both a strong sense of teamwork and independence. Climbing is indiscriminate of gender. Both success and failure happen no matter who you are.

It’s more imperative to know how to use the tools of the “trade”, and know how to get by with the bare essentials than it is so much a matter of what you have tossed into your bag. Don’t get me wrong, what you pack is important, but what you have within yourself is really the key. The question you really need to ask is, “Are you prepared?”

- Suzanne K Nance, the first American woman to complete the Adventurer Grand Slam.
