We strongly advise all team members to seek further experience or training if your skills and experience are not at the required level (see our Teams and Experience section) at the time of application.

The main aspect of training needed for the event is personal fitness. You are recommended to work on improving your fitness, if necessary, prior to the event. As a general rule, you should be comfortable doing 7-8 hour mountain days, but these don’t need to be at a record-breaking speed! If you are comfortable doing multi-day walking with a pack, you will find the experience much easier and more enjoyable.
