APEX ACHIEVEMENTS ARE ARDUOUS ADVENTURES

SUMMITS ARE SPECIAL SERENE & SERENDIPITOUS SPOTS TO SURVEY SURROUNDINGS
HOW - Need climbing helmet, long ice axe, crampons, good navigation skills
COMMENTS: A very serious Mountain - I've attempted it twice. Near each time I was on the Mountain, a climber more experienced and skilled than me died on the Mountain.
