Island Peak is NOT a Trekking Peak
Our Island peak video shows you it is not a trekking peak. We highly recommend doing one of our specific winter skills mountaineering course before attempting Island peak. We have courses in Scotland and Colorado.
As we cross the Island Peak glacier we sometime come across ladder crossings. You can train for this at home but we always have this training in Chuckung on route to Island Peak. Climbing at 6,000m/ 20,000 feet on a 50 – 65 degree angle requires more safety. This is why we fix our own ropes on this challenging terrain at extreme altitude.

Climbing Island peak is not easy but can be achieved with a lot of hill walking experience and some winter skills training.
