  • What are the best times of year?
  • Is it easy or hard for the grade?  (e.g. good first double black diamond)
  • Are there any particular dangers that should be noted: e.g. known to be avalanche prone, cliffs, badly crevassed zones etc.
  • Is the route finding difficult?  Are there any key waypoints / markers which help?
