Alpine climbing is similar to mountaineering, but it’s done in a faster and lighter manner. In addition to having a high level of fitness, the climber must pack the bare minimum of equipment to attempt a faster climb than the one usually planned in mountaineering.

I do it cause I can blog will use Alpine climbing to refer to any technical and/or strenuous mountain climbing trip done light and fast.

Typical Alpine Climbing Gear Includes (but not limited to):

  • Most often, Alpine climbing is done during winter and cold seasons. Therefore, special warm clothing is required
  • Harness
  • Some technical equipment (this is a broad topic as terrain changes, and gear must be chosen based on the terrain)
  • Helmet
  • First aid kit
  • Lighter, 3m length of 1.5mm cord, emergency blanket
  • Light mountaineering tent
  • Sleeping bag (depends on the temperature)
  • Headlight
  • Trekking poles
  • Mountaineering ice axe
  • Rope
  • Maps
  • Compass

Why Alpine climbing?

It is for the mountaineers who are looking for a challenge. It will push their limits as they face treacherous terrain and wild weather.
