Your mountain guide will come to your hotel for your pre-climb briefing at approximately 1800 (assuming your flight gets in early enough), during which he will introduce himself, brief you on everything that will be happening throughout the duration of the climb, check any kit that you may have concerns over, issue any kit hire items that have been requested (if you hire any kit from us for your climb) and he will also deal with any final pre-climb administration and answer any questions you may have.
