Hello everyone. Has anyone climbed the “high-thirteeners” this year? Or is anyone planning to do that? I wanted to try it with some friends but I don’t really think I could do it. It sounds like an amazing adventure, but I need anyone to tell me exactly what to expect.

Hey. Well you don’t have to be afraid or something. Most of those mountains can be climbed without ropes or any technical experience. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring an expert or don’t use ropes, but you get a general idea. It is an amazing experience you shouldn’t miss.

Actually some of the “high-thirteeners” are more difficult than some of the “high-fourteneers” there. I strongly advise you to use ropes and you should really have some technical expertise. I don’t want to scare you but you should not risk it if you are not sure you can make it.

The “high-thirteeners” are usually not as crowded as “high-fourteneers” are. But as it has been said you should use ropes and you should get some experience first. But other than that you should not worry too much. Just know that if you have opportunity to go there, just take it. You would regret forever if you didn't.
