If the weather is favorable, then we will climb Island Peak. Climbing strategy will be decided by one of the climbing Sherpa leader at the time, taking into account the group’s acclimatization, weather, snow conditions and other factors. Sherpa will provide you ice climbing training to make you skillful on using climbing gears such as ropes, ice pick, harness, crampons etc. The following morning we leave very early for the final climb to the summit. This may take between four to six hours, depending on snow and weather conditions. We will fix a rope on the summit headwall for safety on both ascent and descent. Although it is not a technically difficult climb, the snow slopes are crack, the headwall is reasonably steep and a head for heights is useful. To reach the summit, willpower and stamina are required, but the incredible feeling of achievement atop this 6,187 m giant will remain a lifetime memory. The view from the summit is just fantastic! Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Makalu and Baruntse are the dominant giants rising above a sea of smaller peaks. Later, we should be able to descend back to Chukkung from our successfull summit attempt. Congratulations!
