Our registration form requests that you advise us of any medical problems you may have and if you are on any medication. Any information you supply will be treated as confidential.
Skills Required for the Course
This course will appeal to those with previous experience who want to enjoy a new region and collect plenty of summits. It is also appropriate for first time alpinists with a good level of fitness and a hiking or rock climbing background. Instruction can be included into your itinerary to get you started followed by the ascents themselves.
Preparing for the Course
To make the most of your climbing experience we encourage you to work on your fitness prior to the trip. You will find that training on hills with a +10kg pack on is the best preparation for the mountains, with the aim of building your endurance. Your guide will be attuned to your fitness levels and will regulate the pace accordingly.
We strongly recommend that you take out trip cancellation and travel insurance to protect yourself in case of injury or mishap prior to/or whilst on our trips.
While our focus is on safety and our track record supports this, the mountains do have hazards and there is the potential for mishap. If you were injured whilst on the trip there is a very efficient rescue service nearby.
