Planning on trekking with a friend in late December and am curious if anyone can shed some light on the 8/9 day trek to Mount Margherita. How technical is the climb? How fit do you have to be? etc. Thanks!
The climb to the summit proper can be a bit tricky. It's a fixed rope climb, and you might need crampons up on the glacier. Generally classified as a difficult scramble. You'll want to be fit and have a decent head for heights, but if you've got them you'll be fine. almost 3 years ago
