Here are suggested kit lists for our most popular courses:


Remember, you get 15-20% discount at V12
on hardware and clothing when you've booked a Frost Guiding Course. It's valid from the time you book until 1 month after your holiday. Check out our online shop for full terms and conditions.

If there's something you need and don't have, you can probably hire it here. Please be sure to reserve the required equipment on your booking form or email us with your needs before you arrive and we'll do our best to organise it for you. You can pay for hire kit in cash (swiss francs please) at the start of your course/tour.
