Mountaineering is inherently a dangerous activity; the guides of Monte Rosa, all UIAGM certified, commit to minimizing potential risks, but complete risk elimination is not possible. Being aware of this condition and accepting it is necessary before signing up for our activities.
The Monte Rosa Guides will always give their utmost to assist you in achieving your goals and ensuring the best possible experience. However, it is crucial to accept reliance on their unquestionable judgment during mountain excursions and to respect the decisions made, including a potential return if deemed necessary. Adequate preparation and a good level of physical fitness are required to maintain an adequate safety margin in our activities. If, due to physical conditions or any other reason, the guide believes you are not ready for the chosen activity, alternative options suitable for your level of preparedness will be proposed.
