Learn to evaluate yourself

Arriving in shape and being fit is important to enjoy your vacation and put the odds on your side in the outcome of your projects. Below is a table summarizing the physical level and technical level for the different activities suggested.

This table does not include all external factors: emotional, mental... engaging yourself in any Alpine activity requires an effort of commitment and you must be ready to assume it or not. The mountain guide is here to give you an objective indication of the moral level required for each route/summit, but keep always in mind that the the Zero Risk doesn't exist.
