Legal Stuff!

Dear fellow adventurers!

First of all a warning: climbing mountains can kill you just as easily as driving a car or eating a five day old pizza.

It is creeping into world culture to blame everything on everybody but oneself. 

Don't. It is your own responsibility to make sure you and your climbing partners are fit, skilled, informed and equipped enough before you try anything adventurous as hiking or climbing, especially in foreign countries. Don't blame this website or it's owners, your friends or family, higher beings or even your fellow climbers for any physical or mental injury, lethal or not; in the end it's you who did the things you did.

Please think about that for a second or 2.

All  information on this website, in guidebooks and in the newsletters  is put here in good faith; is not responsible for any inaccuracies or anything going wrong as a result of these. Some content is user submitted and we cannot be held responsible for any negative results of these as well. If you see anything on that violates your copyright, privacy or anything else, please let us know and will we will check it out as soon as possible.

Be wise on the mountains and in life in general, respect nature, other cultures, yourself and your fellow climbers and you will probably be ok for a long time; remember: reaching the summit is only half of the story, getting down ok is the only way to tell about your accomplishments. Act sensibly, enjoy the wonderful world and make sure future generations can do the same.
