Mountaineering is an inherently dangerous activity that can lead to serious injury or death. The guides of Monte Rosa are all UIAGM certified and are committed to doing everything possible to minimize the dangers, but the risk can never be eliminated and must be accepted before joining one of our groups.The guides of Monte Rosa will always do their best to help you achieve your goals and ensure you have a very pleasant week; however, you must accept to rely on their unquestionable judgment while you are in the mountains and to respect and accept any decision they make. Being properly prepared and having a minimum standard of physical fitness is necessary to maintain an adequate safety margin in mountaineering climbs. If, due to your physical condition or for any other reason, your guide decides that you are not ready to attempt the ascent to Monte Rosa, you will be offered suitable alternatives.
