Climbing Safety

Climbing Safety

Your safety is extremely serious at Mountaineers Expeditions and is an essential part of all of our systems from the training programs we run. It is important for you to give us your proper information before you trek and we will keep performing check-up on a daily basis during your climb.

Professional Mountain Climbing Guides

Our guides and crews are specifically trained and instructed to ensure, where ever possible, that our guests can walk off the mountain, unaided, themselves. They are also trained extensively on monitoring systems and also management of AMS (acute mountain sickness), and more advanced forms of mountain sickness such as HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema).

They are all Wilderness First Responders and Advanced First Aid Training and professionally certified CPR with resuscitation dummies to environment with specific flora and fauna training. They are best in identification and treatment of them.

We do also use the right tools for the job :-

  • Oximeters
  • PAC, oxygen
  • Stretchers
  • Team work
  • Customised constant monitoring system
  • Communications & backup (sat phones, telephones, radios, evacuation teams, 24 hour backup, liaising with base team)
  • Supplementary oxygen
  • Comprehensive first aid kits
  • Customised evacuation stretchers (designed to allow upright evacuation for pulmonary edema cases as well as back boards for spinal support)
  • Altitude sickness assessment scorecards as a supplementary assessment tool
  • Portable Altitude Chambers are also available and always used on Kilimanjaro trips that stay in Kibo crater. They are available for added safety on request for standard trips as well.
