NOTES AND EXPLANATIONS

It is vital for each participant to check all his/her equipment properly before traveling. Said equipment must be in good conditions, it must be comfortable and of course, it must be apt for the purpose. If at half the traverse, any element of the equipment fails, we will not be able to go on normally or of course replace it.
As for clothes, we always recommend synthetic ones, especially for the inner ones and the torso ones: if you wear sweated cotton t-shirt, you will suffer cold very much until our body helps it dry.
