FAQ

Domande frequenti
Excellent physical condition. Trained person who practices sports even at a non-competitive level. Ability to tackle summer trekking around 2000m in altitude without too much effort. Have successfully completed a Basic stage with Adventure Dreamers or comparable basic level 4000m mountaineering curriculum. You can see this article for comparison.
Obviously good physical shape allows you to progress faster. Progression above 4000m is more tiring than at low altitude, this is due to the lack of oxygen. If you have mountain experience even in the winter season and have already reached another 4000m you will be able to participate
