Safe to climb Mt. Kita-dake in early April?
Is it possible (and safe enough) to climb Mt. Kita-dake in early April (first week)?
Will I be needing crampons and ice axe? I will be climbing solo.
I will be Japan for 6 days in early April, and north and central alps are both out because it's not safe enough... seems like Mt. Kita-dake might be the last chance to climb...
