To promote mountain climbing and to encourage people to challenge themselves physically and mentally, we have initiated and introduced a few annual mountain climbing challenges into our calendar. These mountain climbing challenges are accompanied by a team leader.
Each team leader has the relevant trekking/climbing skills, knowledge of care and safety at high altitude and with the right temperament to lead groups. All of our team leaders are familiar with what we expect from them and how we like them to lead trips on our behalf. Their skills, knowledge and experience complement that of the local climbing/trekking guides . Their main aim will be to ensure that you derive optimum benefit and learning and to maximize your chances of reaching the summit on climbs/treks. They will operate with safety as the prime consideration.
These are the mountain climbing challenges we have initiated thus far. We’re not stopping with these few and will continue to introduce new challenges from time to time:
Women On Mountains
Women On Mountains (WOM) originated from Ace Adventure International Women’s Day Challenge (IWD Challenge). The objectives are to encourage women to challenge themselves through mountain climbing and to raise fund and awareness for a women’s cause.
Twin Peaks Challenge
It is possible to scale 2 or multi-peaks in a single trip in some destinations, given adequate time and preparation. The Twin Peaks Challenge put together scaling 2 peaks in one itinerary. These twin peaks are picked where the ground logistic can be easily arranged and the duration of the entire trip does not stretch too long.
Ice & Snow Peak Challenge
Ice and snow peaks that require the use use of crampons, ice axe, rope up or fixed rope put a greater demand on fitness and skills. We have selected peaks, such as Stok Kangri, that are suitable for those who have experience in multi-days high altitude treks and want to progress to ice & snow peak climbing. There are also peaks, like Mt Khuiten and Lenin Peak, that require participants to be experienced mountain climbers who have ice and snow peak climbing skills.
