Crater Camp lies at an altitude of 18,800 feet/5,750 m and is a very unique place that allows you to explore the glaciers or even hike to Reutsch Crater and the ash pit. Yet, because of it’s extreme altitude, if you are not acclimatized properly, it can be very dangerous and serious AMS is a strong possibility. If you wish to include a night at crater camp please inquire with us.
All our crater camp overnight treks have mandatory Gamow Bag as part of the standard equipment. We only recommend an overnight at Crater Camp if you choose an itinerary with 9 nights on the mountain and 3 nights near or above 15.000 feet before sleeping at Crater Camp.
Ascents via the Western Breach are inherently more dangerous than other routes due to the increased danger of rock fall as well as short sections of scrambling at high altitude and the possibility of increased snow and ice with the associated slipping hazards. It is mandatory for all climbers on the route to wear safety climbing helmets.
