Mountaineering

Mountaineering can be an invigorating sport. The nature that you will see while climbing and the feeling you will get are amazing. Just be certain to have the proper gears before you start your adventure.

Rock climbing has become a popular sport throughout the world. In Europe the sport largely originated in the Alps, and is still immensely popular there. Climbing Shoes must be not only sturdy, but also have good, strong soles that can grip the rocks and/or ice to prevent slipping.

Of course, you do not want to climb a mountain with a pair of regular shoes. You need special climbing shoes for better protection and safety. The mountaineering shoes have a sticky out sole. This will give you a particular grip and durable wear. Moreover, these shoes have deep heel cups. This will assure a good and extra traction for cracks, edges as well as smears. Moreover, those shoes must provide a breathable comfort to your feet.

There is no greater thrill than feeling the crunch of a glacier beneath your foot, hiking by an incredible lake, or climbing a remote mountain peak. And there is no better, more qualified company in all of South America than The Mountaineering Training School Expeditions.
