There and back again

Adventures of Norbert

The north ridge of Maehokadake, one of the three famous ridges of Japan, is our target this time (see more inside) Two days of mountaineering in the Kamikochi area, climbing the north ridge of Maehokadake (前穂北尾根). First day driving from Kanazawa to Kamikochi and walking to the Karazawa Hütte (6 hours). Next day early start at 4:10 and climbing the north ridge, followed by a long and tiring descent on the other side to Kamikochi again.
