Before you go on climbing you need to train yourself physically and mentally.

1. Physical Strength

Climbing big mountians is hard work and you need a lot of physical strength to make it to the summit. One thing you can do is squats or pushups everyday to make you stronger. And also you're not just going to climb with just yourself, in most cases you be carrying a big heavy bag so you need to do upper body as well as lower body work outs.

2. Stamina

You are not just going to be able to climb the mountain in one day, it's probably going to take around 2 weeks to climb big mountians. So you're going to need to have the courage and stamina to keep on going forward for a long time.

3. Altitude TrAining

Of course someone who is planning to climb a mountain will need altitude training. At very high altitudes it is difficult to breathe which then slows you down. Altitude training can help you get used to these difficult to breathe enviroments

4. Believe

I know it sounds kind of cheesy but it's true. If you don't believe you can do it then you can't do it. You need to keep saying that you can do this and don't listen to all those negative thoughts in your head. Meditation is good source of relaxation and clearing of mind.

Equipment

1. Food And Water

This is a pretty obivious one because you can't live without food and water.

2. Clothing

Mountains are very cold and windy, so you're going to need some protective covering. Also mabye pack a few just in case.

3. Helments

Since you might be climbing very high and steep ledges you're going to need a helmet to protect rhe most important organ in your body, your brain.

4. Ropes

Important for climbing steep areas.

5. Harnesses

Vital to connect the rope to the person for climbing

6. Locking Carabiners

To connect things together such as ropes.
