As well as knowledge about the goods, what kind of use to use, day trip, how many days to go, or is it a tent or mountain hut? Which mountain area if climbing or hiking? Because you can consult comprehensively such things such as, I think that the exchange is fun and many people go to the shop.

Okuho Takadake-Mt. Mae Hotakadake (Tent night)

Long route on the shoreline of the popular North Alps, which I want to walk during the snowfall season.

In this route, there are places where it is necessary to use a rope near the suspension ridge. As it includes points for advanced mountain climbers who need climbing skills,When using it, please be sure to accompany the experienced person and refrain from entering the area only for beginners.

I do not feel at ease here,Mt. Mae HotakadakeBe careful because there is such a slope that Oku Myo Kamizawa is likely to be sucked in.

When I walked Takezawa, I would like to ask when I will come next time.


It is such a wonderful route.

X NUM X. Amida Takeshi Nada (day trip or tent night)

The footprints are clear, with the main P3 being Russell at some times, and at other times enjoying crisp, frozen ice climbing.


As I was struck by the cold winds of Yatsugatake, I climbed the Iwasu Belt, and a spacious summit welcomed me.

It is a good route that is unbearable for Amidake.

7. Mt. Utsugidake (Tent night)

The route flew to change towards the Mt. Utsugidake while passing through a rocky and ice-hardened area with a magnificent view of the Central Alps.

This route is a route for advanced snow mountain climbers who have a point of doubt that requires accurate determination of the route and, depending on the situation, may require climbing techniques.When using it, please be sure to accompany the experienced person and refrain from entering the area only for beginners.

Depending on the season, high pines and rotten snow are mixed, and it will be a difficult route in different ways, so it is important to identify the season.

From there, on the way to the route finning, which is said to be a "muddy ridge".


There is snow and I can not walk on the summer road, so I will proceed with caution as I will enter the wrong ridge if I distract.


Near the head of YonazawaIs a pretty standing snow wall,In some cases, take the rope and proceed.


It is a route unique to the Central Alps where you can enjoy climbing and descent while determining the condition of the snow.

How was it. Following on from the previous session, Kumiko Tanaka at Sakaiya Sports Echo Plaza introduced "Okuho Takadake-Mt. Mae Hotakadake", "Amidake Nanbu" and "Mt. Utsugidake".
