Other details

Attention: Signal Ridge is intended for expert mountaineers. Before accepting the ascent, our guides will ask for your climbing resume and, if necessary, you will be asked to do a preliminary climb to verify your skills and preparation.
As this type of ascent requires stable weather and excellent conditions, it is only possible to fix an indicative date, which must then be fixed in the days prior to the actual ascent. For this type of climb, we cannot offer a rate that includes ski lifts and overnight shelter at the refuge, as these dates can only be fixed after assessing all conditions.
