Confession - this was a bit overwhelming for me. I'm short, and not extremely limber, so there were points where I struggled to get from point A to Point B reaching from one hand/foothold to another. The altitude played a factor in it, also. There were a couple of points where I wanted to give up and pay big bucks for a helicopter rescue, but took some deep breaths, gathered some strength and made it to the next handhold. This 57 year old lady doesn't quit! But this is not a reflection on the tour itself, simply me stating that I'm not as young, strong, athletic and in-shape as I used to be! The great parts: our very patient and knowledgeable guide the scenery - snow in July, mountain and valley views the overall wow factor a sense of accomplishment. I never felt like we were in danger, I wasn't scared, and it was a seriously cool experience. I wanted this to be a challenge, and it was! To be honest, the descriptions made it sound easier than it was. Even my strong, athletic daughter found it to be physically challenging. Just be prepared, know your limits, bring some nutrition and water and a lot of fortitude, and enjoy.

This tour was amazing! Theresa, our guide, was so friendly and super helpful and supportive; she placed me behind her as I was not used to walking in snow or climbing. The climb pushed me to my limits. With lots of adrenaline and low risk being tethered in makes it a fun alpine experience. Although it was cloudy and couldn't see anything below, it was an amazing activity.
