MountainPlanet expertise on every step of the way
1. Easy
Light physical activity, usually walking or hiking, that is good for most fitness levels. Also suitable for children and elderly people. Perfect for whose who have never been to the mountains and who want to try it out.

2. Moderate
Activity involves daily walking for 3-5 hours a day, usually multi-day treks or long 1-day hikes that require a high level of physical activity. Suitable for people with an average level of physical fitness.

3. Challenging
Activity involves daily walking for 3-5 hours a day at various types of terrain (rough trails, partially exposed areas with danger of falling, gravel plains, pathless steep terrain) or high-altitude treks above 2000 meters. Requires an average to above average fitness level.

4. Strenuous
Activity involves walking up to 6-7 hours a day in fairly difficult terrain (steep rocky slopes, snow covered glaciers or firn fields with danger of slipping) or high-altitude treks above 3000 meters. Requires an above average fitness level and high level of stamina.

5. Extreme
Activity involves walking up to 6-10 hours a day with difficult terrain and conditions (tricky rocky slopes or snow covered glaciers with increased danger of slipping), strenuous high-altitude treks at 4000-5600 meters. Requires very high level of physical fitness and stamina, as well as good practical experience of multi-day trekking on high altitudes.
HIKING/ TREKKING ACTIVITY LEVELS
What intensity you should expect from this activity and what fitness level is required for this activity
0. No requirements/ minimal requirements
Easy hiking/ trekking with non-technical elements. No certain knowledge or experience is required for this activity.

1. Beginner
Basic navigation skills are required if hiking/ trekking without a guide. Previous hiking/ trekking experience is not required, but desirable. No danger of falling with appropriate behaviour.

2. Intermediate
Average navigation skills are required if hiking/ trekking without a guide. Basic alpine experience is needed.

3. Advanced
Path not necessarily available. Sometimes need to use hands to keep going. Terrain assessment, good navigation skills and good alpine experience is required.

4. Professional
Mostly without a path and unmarked, might involve some climbing sections. Excellent navigation skills are required even if trekking with a guide. Proven alpine experience, mountaineering skills and familiarity with alpine equipment are required.
HIKING/ TREKKING: TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY LEVELS
Some activities might envolve technical elements for which certain practical experience or training is needed.
1. Easy
1-day or multi-day climbs at an altitude up to 3000 meters. Easy, mostly walking terrain. Good for most fitness levels. Also suitable for children and elderly people. Perfect for those who have never climbed a mountain and who want to try it out.

2. Moderate
1-day or multi-day climbs at an altitude of up to 3000 meters with some technical elements. Mostly walking terrain. Requires an average level of physical fitness.

3. Challenging
Multi-day climbs with longer and more exposed climbing areas at the altitude up to 5000-6000 meters. Requires high endurance to walk several days for about 4-6 hours a day. Steeper slopes, many crevasses. Requires an average to above average fitness level.

4. Strenuous
Strenuous climbs at altitudes of 5000-7000 meters. Requires high endurance to walk and climb on a moderate snow and ice slopes for several days for up to 8 hours a day. Continuously steep terrain, wall passages that require great commitment. Requires an above average fitness level and high level of stamina.

5. Extreme
Extremely challenging climbs for experienced mountaineers, high altitudes up to 8848 meters. Requires extremely high level of physical fitness and stamina, as well as great practical experience of technical mountaineering.
CLIMBING/MOUNTAINEERING ACTIVITY LEVELS
What intensity you should expect from this activity and what fitness level is required for this activity
0. No requirements/ minimal requirements
Easy climbs with non-technical elements. No certain knowledge or experience is required for this activity.

1. Beginner
Climbing sections clearly arranged and unproblematic. Might include short steep passages and a few crevasses. Increased step safety is necessary. No prior experience is required, all necessary techniques will be explained by the guide before or during the climb.

2. Intermediate
Good navigational skills and efficient rope handling required, long climbing sections. Basic experience in using crampons and ice axes is required.

3. Advanced
Good sense of orientation en route, efficient rope handling, long climbs, requires securing at halting-points. Requires proficiency in basic mountaineering skills including: cramponing, walking on snow, self-arrest, crevasse rescue, and glacier travel on a rope team.

4. Professional
Extremely steep, partly overhanging wall passages, ice climbing sections. Requires proficiency in basic and advanced mountaineering skills including: cramponing, walking on snow, self-arrest, crevasse rescue, and glacier travel on a rope team.
CLIMBING/MOUNTAINEERING: TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY LEVELS
Some activities might envolve technical elements for which certain practical experience or training is needed.
1. Easy
Simplest form of rock/ice climbing (several pitches of easy roped climbing). Hands/ice tools required for balance. Beginners will be secured to the rope. Good for most fitness levels, requires interest and determination.

2. Moderate
Half a day or less for the technical portion of the route. Vertical places or overhangs with good grip require physical effort. A head for heights and good level of physical fitness are advised.

3. Challenging
Most of the day or a full day of roped or technical climbing (one or two pitches). Greater physical requirements, climbing technique and experience. Requires an average to above average fitness level.

4. Strenuous
Typically requires an overnight on the route, two or more days of hard climbing. Above-average ability and good level of training required.

5. Extreme
Remote walls climbed in alpine style. Multi-day routes with a hard climbing. Only achievable through increased training, considerable strength in the arms and hands and improved equipment. Excellent physical conditioning is a must.
ROCK/ ICE CLIMBING ACTIVITY LEVELS
What intensity you should expect from this activity and what fitness level is required for this activity
0. No requirements/ minimal requirements
No certain knowledge or experience is required for this activity. All necessary techniques will be explained by the guide before or during the climb.

1. Beginner
Movement with simple combinations of steps and handles (three-point-technique). Intermediate securing at exposed points is recommended. Frequent use of hands/ice tools is required to support balance and hand and foot-holds must be trusted.

2. Intermediate
Here real climbing begins, that requires the movement of one limb at a time and a proper setting of the movements. Holds and supports are still abundant. The rock/ice structure, already more steep or even vertical, offers holds and supports the rarest and can already require the use of force. Typically the passages are not solved yet in an obliged manner.

3. Advanced
Holds and supports become more rare and / or small. It requires a good climbing technique applied to the various rock/ice structures (chimneys, crevices, corners, etc.) as well as a certain degree of specific training. The climbing becomes delicate (slabs, etc..) or hard (by opposition or interlocking in slits and chimneys). Usually requires the prior examination of the passage.

4. Professional
Handholds/Mixed ice and rock are small/very thin and unstable, widely spread and arranged so as to require a particular combination of movements well studied. Rock/ice structure may force you to climb very delicate or very hard where overhanging. It requires a sophisticated training with particular development of finger strength, skill in balancing and grip techniques.
