1. Make sure you are physically fit for the climb or hike planned.

2. If this is one of your first climbs start with an easy route and don't overexert yourself.

3. Have maps or a trail guide and communication like a cell phone in case you run into trouble. For more information on your first climb and how to proceed click here
