Climbs and Expeditions with Field Touring Alpine
Stok Kangri is a very straightforward 6000m climb and a great first high altitude climb. We are excited to offer the trip for climbers & trekkers and we welcome adventurous trekkers as well as experienced climbers. We sent a pilot group in 2012 who had a great time and we look forward to making this a regular trip for us in the years ahead!
Our Stok Kangri climb will include a side trek to the Markah Valley, an optional second climb on Kang Yatse and the culture and beauty of Leh.
In 2014 FTA will be offering its innaugural climb to Noshaq via the Wakhan Corridor and we invite climbers and trekkers to join us for a great trip to Afghanistan's highest peak.
Noshaq, at 7492m, is situated in the far eastern reaches of the Hindu Kush and straddles the Afghan/Pakistan border. The climb is moderately technical and climbers should have strong backgrounds in climbing and at altitude.
Afghanistan’s stunning Wakhan Corridor is situated in the far north east of the country between the Greater Pamir and Hindu Kush mountain ranges. Geographically and politically isolated the Wakhan is today, as it’s mainly been for centuries, largely peaceful and unchanged in a country with an otherwise turbulent history.
Join FTA for an unforgettable Himalayan journey coving three high passes and 4 peaks in less than 4 weeks! We'll make our trek in to climb Island Peak by way of Namche and Tengboche Monastery and then climb Pokalde and Lobuche East en route to Gokyo by the Kongma La and Cho la passes. After a final climb on Gokyo Ri we cross the Renjo La to reach Thame and its historic monastery.
Denali, aka 'the Great One,' is the classic mountaineering objective in North America and one of the great trips of a lifetime. Many try the West Buttress first pioneered in 1950 by the interminable Bradford Washburn, due to its relative ease of access with Air Taxis low technical difficulties. We believe our route choice defines the style in which we travel and we chose to climb the Upper West Rib. This gives us a great opportunity to acclimatize then experience a more technical finish on less travelled route on our way to the summit.
Standing at a height of 5633m / 18,481 ft, Elbrus is a giant dormant volcano in a chain of mountains known as The Caucasus. The Caucasus range forms a chain of snowy, high, alpine mountains separating Georgia from Russia to the north. They run for 1000km with many peaks over 4000m. Elbrus is the highest peak in this range and indeed Europe and is one of the Seven Continental Summits.
This program has been priced to give climbers an affordable opportunity to test their skills and endurance on arguably mountaineering’s greatest objective: K2. If you aspire to climb classic Himalayan 8,000ers, in a remote and stunning setting, and with quality back-up and expert leadership, then we invite your application for this once-in-a-lifetime expedition.
