Hi Strava Team,
I'm enjoying Strava since years (mainly Ultra Trail Running and Mountaineering) and I like this platform very much - thank you for providing it! This is however my first post in the Community Hub.

I'm glad to see many exotic activities Strava has added recently but wondering that some basic ones like Mountaineering are still missing (Garmin offers it, for instance).
I'm talking about classical Mountaineering which is actually a combination of Hiking, Rock Climbing and Ice Climbing, mainly at high altitudes, always targeting a summit, in contrast to the latter ones.
So, ascending any serious summit in the Alps, Andes or Himalaya doesn't fit in any category currently available on Strava.

I'd be glad to see Mountaineering activity type in Strava, please.

Thank you in advance!
