Mountain Climbing Challenges

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.

WOM Everest Base Camp (5364m): 2-19 Apr 2017

WOM Elbrus South (5642m): 5-15 Aug 2017

WOM Kilimanjaro Northern Circuit (5895m):  7-16 Dec 2017

Twin Peaks Challenge

It is possible to scale 2 or multi-peaks at one go 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.

Mt Alam Kuh (4850m) & Mt Damavand (5671m)  : 18 Jun – 1 Jul 2017

Mt. Siguniang, 1st Peak (5038m) &  2nd Peak (5276m): 14 – 24 Oct 2017

Mera Peak (6472m) & Island Peak (6189m) : 13 Oct – 9 Nov 2017

Mt Baguduo (4400m) & Mt Aotaina (4800m) : 3-12 Nov 2017

Jade Mountain (3952m) & Snow Mountain (3886m): 9 – 16 Dec 2017

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.

Mt Elbrus (North Route) : 20-31 Jul 2017

Stok Kangri (6153m) : 28 Jul – 8 Aug 2017

Mt Khuiten (4374m) : 4-16 Aug 2017
