In the mountains it is important to layer your clothing. I suggest layers of light, easily carried clothing that allow for fast and easy adjustment to best suit fast changing temperature conditions in the mountains. Cotton clothing of any kind is not recommended as it causes rapid heat loss when wet. We will have time to go through your clothing and gear prior to the climb.
You will need to bring:
•LONG UNDERWEAR, top and bottom, polypro, wool, capilene or fleece.
