Kyajo Ri is a wonderful mountain for those looking to progress their Alpine Mountaineering Skills. Situated in the Khumbu region, climbing this mountain offers a real experience of an Alpine Expedition. You will spend up to 5 nights in a tented camp as you make your way up the beautiful secluded valley. The hike up to Base Camp is over interesting mixed terrain and will feel quite challenging when combined with the high altitude. But you are rewarded with a stunning Cwm of towering mountains and the camp will be set up next to a freshwater stream.
On day 2, you will head up the valley towards an obvious Col. To make it up to High Camp you will negotiate scree and rocks/boulders over steep terrain to reach the Col. At this point you will again be rewarded with another stunning valley and the summit of Kyajo Ri will be in sight!
After a well-deserved rest day, you will begin your final ascent to Advance High Camp. Again, there is another challenging scramble up to the final Col which is a mix of large rocks and scree. The setting for Advance High Camp is just perfect. Right next to a lake (generally frozen) you will have amazing glacial views and full sight of Kyajo Ri and the route you will take to ascend this technical mountain.
On summit day, you will start around 2 am, make your way around the frozen lake, and experience breath-taking views of the glacier as you move over this in the dark (generally with crampons). You will experience a challenging Grade 1 scramble over rocks by head-torch to reach the South East Col before daylight and this is where the real climbing begins! Crampons on, and a good single technical ice axe (suitable for Scottish Grade 2) you will begin to ascend steep snow and ice using a jumar on a line fixed by your Sherpa. You will meet some demanding climbing up a rock wall which can be iced up. This section requires some technical climbing skills and you will use your ice axe on the rock to climb this section successfully. The route to the summit can feel extremely steep and exposed at times (between 60 and 70 degrees), where you are required to front point and use your ice axe for long periods, so good physical fitness and determination are required to meet the demands of this beautiful mountain.
Once at the top you are rewarded with the most amazing panoramic views across the whole of Khumbu. The descent will be several abseils, and technical down climbing through rock, and snow in icy conditions, but you are always rewarded by the sweet hot tea waiting to reward you at camp. A truly exhilarating day that will leave you exhausted but very happy. A great challenging experience for the aspiring Alpine Mountaineer!
