Ascension of Mount Kathadin in Maine

Aller à la page en Français –> ascension Mt Kathadin

Although not as high as Mount Washington, Mount Katadhin is by far the most difficult mountain in Northeastern America. With its 2 days approach, its sometimes difficult weather conditions and its avalanches, only the most adventurous ones will try it. The park rangers will check the experience and the equipment of each team before they start climbing the mountain. This is where it is reassuring to know that you are dealing with recognized guides. We are there to make sure that everything goes well. Note also that Mount Kathadin is majestic and very attractive. You dream to live a mountain expedition experience without investing astronomical amounts, nor leave for several weeks, or to prepare yourself for bigger mountains? This trip is for you! We offer you an exciting adventure at less than a 10 hour drive. This trip is designed for mountaineers or climbers with ice axe/crampons experience and with back country skiing experience as well.
