The rules regarding participation in this activity must be followed. You are at all times solely responsible for your personal safety and must adopt a precautionary attitude on your own behalf and towards the other participants.

This activity takes place in natural settings which are farther away from emergency services. This simple fact could therefore mean that help would be longer in coming in case of an accident requiring immediate care or that you will have to pay for any evacuation.

Participation in a via ferrata activity involves certain risks, notably including the possibility of personal injury, death, or material damages caused by falls or contact with blunt or sharp objects.

You need to stop participating in this activity if you see or feel at any time that you are incurring an unusual risk or experiencing unsafe conditions, or if you believe that you no longer have the necessary condition enabling you to continue participating in the activity, all so as not to jeopardize your own safety or that of the other participants. In such a case, you must notify your guide of your intention of terminating your participation in this activity.
