Climbing Island Peak with Three High Passes is difficult. You can reach the peak if you are in good physical shape. If you have already hiked to a high altitude, this is a fantastic challenge. The initial portion of the journey is physically demanding because you are trudging up rugged terrain at a height of more than 5000m. This section, however, is clearly not technical. You must equip crampons and a rope once you arrive to the glacier field. Throughout this part, there is a chance of falling into crevasses coated with snow.
Although it might feel daunting, you will always be on safety lines. You eventually arrive at the headwall's base. This portion of the climb is the most difficult due to the steep slope and thin air. Although the climbing route is made safe by fixed lines, getting to the top ridge will require a lot of effort and willpower. It is best suited for hikers who have some prior experience utilizing fixed ropes and crampons when hiking at high heights. Given that training will be provided, this is not necessary.
