Cancellation Policy

  • If your program is canceled due to inclement weather, we can reschedule for a better day, or we can offer a full refund. Please call to discuss weather concerns by noon of the previous day if you wish to reschedule. If we experience bad weather locally, we will pro rate your day on a half day basis.
  • If you cancel within the preceding 30 days, do not show on the day of your climb, or reschedule within 30 days, you forfeit your tuition.

Please note: The guide or instructor always reserves the right to change or suggest alternate objectives based on route conditions. Sometimes, these conditions aren’t appearing until we arrive or are on the route. If this occurs, we may be forced to retreat. We are always looking to reward our guests with sound experiences. This is left to the judgment of the guide in all circumstances. If time on the trip permits, we may opt to attempt the objective again.
