A friend and I would love to climb a mountain sometime next summer. We are looking for a suitable mountain.
1. We are based in the UK so anywhere in Europe would be good. Other than that, no preference.
2. Both of us are relative beginners and lack major mountain climbing experience, though we are active and physically in good shape. We are open to hiring a porter/guide if something is tricky.
3. A nice snowy summit would be cool!
Any other beginner related mountain climbing stories/tips/guides/links also appreciated! Thanks Mifi :)
