Mountaineering requires endurance, technique and perseverance in order to reach the summit. Adverse weather can increase the risks dramatically, with crevasses a permanent danger. No matter how experienced a climber is, slips, trips, falls and failing anchors can often result in personal injury, so mountaineering injury insurance is essential, as this can replace lost wages, allowing amateur mountaineers to concentrate on their recovery, and not worrying about how they’re going to make the rent or mortgage payments. Equipment like crampons, ropes and ice picks can all be expensive to replace, so suitable cover for these items is recommended too. Our mountaineering equipment insurance protects your gear against loss, damage or theft, anywhere in the world, 24/7.When heading off on an a mountaineering holiday abroad, the consequences of requiring medical attention can be a huge financial shock if not correctly insured, so you should also consider appropriate travel insurance.
