This is how you can use the system:

3) You then post the following:

  • current time
  • number of pax,
  • start and finish points
  • your route
  • alternate number of any other pax in the group
  • your eta

4) One of the monitors will acknowledge and reply to your “check in”.

5) Off you go.

6) At regular intervals, you are required to update.

7) Pictures are welcome, but not too many.

8) When you are done with your activity, you then check out. “Done. SOM” (safely off the mountain).

This can also be done via SMS, Twitter, email, or a phone call.


The limitations are:

  • In the case of an emergency, you will be contacted by the correct resources, from the time that you report it.
  • You don’t have to hunt for emergency numbers.
