Guided Summit Attempts
It is early in the morning and the cold sends a strong chill down your spine. You know it is going to be a long challenging day, but what lies before you will be well worth it. Moving at a steady pace, you sense dawn's colors illuminating the beauty around you. The world seems to slowly disappear below. As you take in the view, you begin to grasp that you are actually climbing a mountain!
Climbing a mountain can be a life changing experience that should never be taken lightly. Wilderness Expeditions staff specialize in route finding, weather interpretation, physiological knowledge and emergency procedures to ensure that you have an experience you will want to share with others. Only about one percent of the world's population has stood on top of a mountain. The spiritual impact of such an experience is hard to sum up in words. No matter what level of experience you possess, this is a trip you will never forget.
