PROGRAM

The basic mountaineering course is for beginners and for all those who approach climbing activities for the first time. The course includes teaching, through lectures and practical tests, the basic climbing techniques you need to know to safely tackle ascents with stretches on glaciers, mixed terrain and easy climbing. The course will teach you the principles and will enable you to put them into practice through exercises that will help you to get to know the mountain environment, learn the proper use of equipment (crampons, ice axe, ropes, etc…) and be properly trained on risks and security issues at high altitude.
The course program we suggest can be adapted to the needs and technical capabilities of the participants.
