The privileges we enjoy in the mountains bring responsibilities. The facts of mountaineering life today include permit systems that limit access to the backcountry, road and trail closures, environmental restoration projects, public policy issues, and the clash of competing interest groups. A professional mountain guide has accepted the risks entailed in mountaineering and rock climbing and the responsibility of setting precedence for all of their clients to follow. AMGA instructors and guides are committed to providing safe and quality experiences for their clients while protecting and serving as a steward of the lands they tread upon.
