Fortress Ridge

  • Height: 2,365 m (7,760 ft)
  • Technicality: Intermediate
I had lung infection and it took several weeks to heal. Finally I became well enough to climb mountains… I thought. Unfortunately right around 2300m, I started having problem with breathing, and had no choice but to turn around. Despite that I quite enjoyed the view. Definitely I have to go back.

The Fortress look very majestic, and I wish to come back in middle of summer when grass is green.
