Island Peak as we have known it is finished! 2024 will be our last year running Island Peak climbs on the current route. It has been a great 15 years of running trips to Island Peak. There has been a drastic change to the risk profile on Island Peak. The quality of climbers coming to Island Peak has dropped and the rockfall risk on the headwall is becoming more dangerous. We will not be taking anymore groups until a new route to be established. Check out our Lobuche Peak page.

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 60 to 70 degree angle requires more safety. This is why we fix our own ropes on this challenging terrain at extreme altitude. READ MORE about our approach to climbing Island peak.
