Do you want to have a great experience in the beautiful Japanese mountains and also receive some basic mountaineering training? Then, this 2-day winter course in the mountains of Yatsugatake is ideal for you.
The Yatsugatake mountains are a group of volcanic peaks in the Yamanashi Prefecture, in the central area of Japan. The highest of them is Mount Aka, at 2899 m.
It’s a wonderful natural area, with alpine forests and wild flowers. Besides, it receives visitors all-year-round and offers many climbing routes for every level.
During this 2-day training course, you’ll learn how to prepare and use crampons, deal with short-roping, avoid falls, and learn about bivouacs for winter mountaineering, and get some experience in ice climbing. You will also learn about basic gears for winter mountaineering.
As this is a beginner course, you don’t need to have any previous experience or just a little.
After finishing this clinic, you’ll be confident enough to enjoy this sport during the cold season. I believe this experience will open a new door for you!
