Technical Alpine Peaks
Technical Alpine peaks are middle to hard grade peaks (PD+ to D) which require climbing skills. The routes are steep and previous experience in tackling classic alpine peaks is essential.
These peaks are attempted with a 1:1 guest to guide ratio.
It normally takes 2 days to climb these alpine summits, one day to approach the hut and one to summit and descend back to the valley.
