Mountaineering is not without risks, mainly at high altitudes; natural hazards include rock falls, avalanches, adverse weather conditions, equipment failure and fatigue.
There are three types of Mountaineering depending on whether you ascend rock, snow or ice.
Risks associated with Mountain Climbing are divided into two categories: Objective Hazards and Subjective Hazards.
Objective Hazards exist regardless of the climber's presence, such as bad weather, avalanches and rockfalls.
Subjective Hazards relate more to human failures, such as faulty equipment, ineffective safety procedures and poor planning. Experienced Mountaineers will have planned safe routes and checked their equipment beforehand.
Furrows left by falling rocks and weather conditions conducive to ice movement will be easier for an experienced Mountaineer to spot.
Pre-Existing Medical Conditions
If you have pre-existing medical conditions and plan to participate in Mountaineering whilst travelling abroad, we can provide you with a policy.
Our provider (Adventures) can offer travel insurance if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
