Which peaks in Nagano area would be suitable for a novice?
Very interesting articles. I hope you can offer me some advice which peaks would be suitable for a novice. I will be staying in Nagano 8th-13th Oct. and I don't not want to pass up the opportunity to climb a peak whilst there.
Is it is essential to have crampons and an ice axe? I guess I'm looking for a climb that won't require these, but which will still be fairly challenging. Please reply.
