    Hi Mat,
    Looks a challenge! Exact dates, who is organising it and how much? Could be interested in this one.

    We are organising it ourselves
    Cost usually about £100 a day for accommodation and food. Plus travel. Self supported so carry own stuff. 5 days riding each day harder than most sportives
    If problems need to sort yourself out.some days riding in 30 – 40 c then at top of mountain snow.
