British Mountain Guides

Our reason for becoming a Mountain Guide can be derived from our appreciation of the beauty of the mountains, our acceptance of the risks entailed in mountaineering and the value we place on our partnership with other climbers. To achieve this, a Mountain Guide is clear-sighted and meticulous who demonstrates a professional attitude with commitment. 

We demonstrate our respect for the mountains by close co-operation with those who live and work there and with land management agencies. Our activities are carried out in a sensitive manner, in tune with the natural environment. Our acceptance of risk in the mountain environment presupposes alertness, prudence, self-knowledge, vigilance, current technical expertise and good equipment. The Mountain Guide offers loyalty to the contract with the client, aid to any climbers in distress, the adoption of the highest safety standards, trust and a spirit of good fellowship toward all peoples, mountain regions and countries.
