Know the Facts

mountaineering insurance

Most mountaineering accidents occur in the rugged mountainous states of WA, CA, WY, CO, and AK. A likely reason why these states have the most mountain accidents is that they not only have the greatest area of climbable terrain, but they also have a high number of “trophy” peaks, which attract an outsized proportion of non-locals who are often overly eager to get to the summit.

58% of climbing accidents were from roped climbing. 42% were from unroped climbing. 12% of the accidents were involved in a belaying incident and 4.5% were from a rockfall incident. Source
