Climbing a mountain is no easy feat, we understand that, and so we set you up for success by ensuring you have the best possible equipment and guides on your adventure.

Our aim is to provide an experience that is safe, enjoyable and as comfortable as possible

Mountain Climbing Shoes:-

You will need a pair of trainers/sneakers/tennis shoes as well as a pair of waterproof trekking boots (alpine treks). Make sure that your shoes are ‘broken in’ before the climb so that you reduce the risk of getting blisters. When choosing a shoe size do keep in mind that you will need thick socks as well.

Note: If you do not wish to bring trekking boots we have some available to rent.
