Classic Alpine Peaks
Classic alpine peaks are those peaks which are in the easy to middle grade (F to PD) and include many 4000m peaks.
If you have experience with axe and crampons then a suitable peak can be found depending on your fitness level.
These peaks are done on a guiding ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 depending on peak and ability of the guests.
It normally takes 2 days to climb an alpine peak, one day to approach a hut and the next day to summit and descend back to the valley.
