Makalu April 2010 Confirmed!

FTA Makalu 2010 is confirmed for an April 10 start with Fabrizio Zangrilli!

Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world, is considered one of the most beautiful 8000m peaks; our expedition will ascend the NW ridge. First climbed by a French expedition in 1955, the route comprises mostly snow and ice and averages 50 degrees until the summit gully, which reaches 65 degrees. All of the difficult sections will be fixed with rope to allow a quick passage both up and down the mountain.

Join us for a great trip to one of the less travelled 8000m peaks!
