Please note

Mountaineering is a dangerous activity by nature, the Monte Rosa Guides, all UIAGM certified, commit to taking every possible measure to mitigate these risks. However, it's crucial to acknowledge that complete risk elimination is impossible, and participants must accept this reality before registering for our activities.
The Monte Rosa Guides are dedicated to helping you reach your goals and ensuring you have an exceptional experience. Nevertheless, you must agree to place your full trust in their judgment during the hike and respect any decisions they make, including the possibility of turning back if they deem it necessary. Being adequately prepared and maintaining a minimum level of fitness is essential to ensure a sufficient margin of safety in our activities. If, whether due to your physical condition or other factors, your guide decides that you are not ready for the hike, we will purpose you alternatives tailored to your level.
