Glacier tech workshop in swiss alps, august 2011

Mountainpro Romanian Guiding and Outdoor Agency is inviting you in Switzerland, in the heart of the beautiful Bernese Oberland Alps for a glacier techniques workshop in August, 2011.

It is a five day glacier workshop, starting on the 22nd of August till the 26th of August 2011, and during this time you'll learn basic glacier travel techniques, accidental fall arrest, how to set anchors in the snow, crevasse rescue, ice climbing and so on, and on the last day we'll summit Frundenhorn (3369m).

There will be two guides running this workshop, Marc Schertenleib (CH) - UIAGM/IVBV/IFGMA mountainguide and Ciprian Moruzan (RO) - AGMR/RMGA mountainguide, and we are expecting six to eight guests to attent, in this way we make sure that everyone has enough time to learn and practice during the workshop; on the other hand keeping a small guide/guests ratio will ensure an increasing safety aspect.

We'll be based in Frundenhutte, at 2562 m, at the base of the glacier, having an excellent view of the peaks around (Frundenhorn and Bluemlisalphorn), as well of the gorgeous lake below.
We will provide the following:
- 5 days guided instruction on the mountain with 2 certified mountainguides;
- group gear - ropes, technical ice axes, ice screws, pulleys;
- meals and accommodation during your stay in Frundenhutte;

You should have your own equipment(waterproofs, thermals, crampons, mountaineering ice axe, strong mountaineering boots, gaiters, few pairs of good socks, sunglasses, gloves, water bottle, 2-3 locking carabiners, first aid kit, sunscreen), head lamp, 2 prusik loops.

Please use the contact area on MountainPro Romanian Guiding Agency website to join this trip and for further informations, or simply send and email to mountainpro(at) .

We look forward to hearing from you and to meet you in August to share a beautiful adventure in the Alps!

White water adrenaline rush

It is as it sounds: a flow of adrenaline rush during the rafting trip! Starting from this year  MountainPro  - romanian guiding and outdoor agency and its partners is offering water-related activities, such as river rafting and kayaking. Challenging waters for the braves or more peacefull streams for family trips, everything's possible.

Our playground is Buzau river (ww2 up to ww3+), about 80 km away from Brasov,  a river that has a constant volume becouse of the water from the power plant, so we can provide white water trips starting from early spring 'till late autumn.
You'll be provided with full neoprene suite, neoprene boots, lifejacket, helmet and paddle, and certified river guides (will open a .pdf document with certified river guides from the International Rafting Federation website).

Safety is very important for us, that's why all our guides are IRF certified guides with great river guiding experience. As well, our equipment is designed for increased safety. We use Spreu Boote Hippo boats and equipment.

You can find us at Buzau river on weekends, but trips during the week are also possible upon request. Please use the contact section on Mountainpro website to make a provisional booking via telephone or email or to check the availability for a certain date.

There's no more to say than come out and play ! We hope to see you all by the river soon!
