- show you something you would have missed otherwise
- teach you how to evolve in mountains to be efficient and stable
- lead you where you would not dare to go on your own
- make sure you are safe and can keep up our trip
- share my experience and check you have the right gears for a trek or a bivy

Humility is the key if you want to enjoy a wonderful experience in the mountains. Their is no point under/over estimating your physical capacities. Choose the fitness level that suits you the best for the past month:
Beginner: I do a physical activity 30min to 2h/week. I’m capable of a continuous effort for 20min max. (3hrs activity)
Intermediate: I train 2h to 8h weekly. I like being fit and I can handle a continuous effort for an hour. (6hrs activity)
Trained: I train 8 to 12h weekly and I have a strava/garmin account to follow my performances. You can take me anywhere, I don’t mind biting my tongue when it’s really hard (multiple days trip).
