Guided tour operators in the region accommodate various levels of ability and experience, providing both instruction and proper equipment (rental or supplied). Tours range from day climbs to multi-day mountaineering adventures. However, well-equipped and experienced climbers and mountaineers can venture out, self-guided, on an endless numbers of routes.
