The Soloists Code of Integrity

  • Solo means being alone for the full length of the journey.
  • A soloist may not tack onto another team or soloist and still claim to be solo, they should be breaking trail for the majority of the route.
  • Encounters (eg. with a film crew) must be brief, transitory and scarce, with no exchange other than passing conversation. Encounters should not break the usual cadence of a journey
  • If a soloist is forced to camp next to another team due to a confined campsite (narrow valley or crevassed area etc) this should be no longer than one night unless forced to remain due to uncontrollable circumstances.
