Rock climbing is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. If you choose to climb, you must be aware of and accept these risks and assume personal responsibility for your own safety at all times.
Here is some information to get you started:
Remember: No book, internet article or video is a substitute for expert, one-on-one instruction and experience. Repeated and progressive learning opportunities with a more experienced climbing partner are indispensable in learning how to climb.
Make sure you are conversant with proper techniques and safety requirements before you climb.
