Are there any prerequisites to participate in this course?
All of our trips will include scrambling on terrain of at least 3rd class nature and so we require that clients have previous scrambling or rock climbing experience. Our mountaineering trips are very demanding days and you must be able to travel long distances with extended times of exposure.

What equipment is required for these trips?
Helmet, medium sized backpack (approx. 40L), sturdy mountaineering boots. We include climbing gear: harness, crampons, tools.

When and how do I meet up with our instructor?
Your instructor will contact you at least 48 hours prior to your activity start date to finalize details regarding meeting location and time.

What should I bring?
We supply all climbing gear. You should bring water, food, snacks, sunglasses, backpack, long pants, synthetic materials shirt, an extra insulating or waterproof layer, and mountaineering boots (which can be rented.)

Should we tip our instructor?
Your guide/instructors work hard before, during, and after your course to provide you with a great experience, and while not expected, gratuities are always highly appreciated. If you had a safe, educational, and fun experience, gratuities typically range from 15-20%.
