Serious alpine climbs.  Rugged terrain and lots of exposed scrambling.  You should have experience  and comfort on this type of terrain.

This is not a climb to check off requirements.  It is more about the adventure.

If you are interested and believe this is the right trip for you, please include a short note via email explaining why you want to do the climb and highlighting some of the approach or route information that shows to me you have done the research.
