The activities described in this web site are potentially dangerous. Canyoneering, rock climbing, and mountaineering involve unavoidable risks including the risk of serious bodily injury and death. All forms of wilderness recreation have a higher level of risk than many ordinary activities.

These risks include but are not limited to slips, falls, falling objects, equipment failure, being injured by equipment both properly and improperly used, automobile accidents, insect and animal attacks, accident or illness in remote places, forces of nature, effects of weather, rockfall, icefall, avalanches, falls into crevasses and moats, and other hazards of traveling in mountainous terrain, as well as accidents resulting from fatigue, exercise of poor judgment, and inexperience. This web site contains compilations of verified and unverified route information gathered from many different sources.

Mountain conditions change from day to day and season to season, rendering any information subject to change without warning. Do not trust your personal safety to any information presented here. Climbing safely depends on your own good judgment, based on experience and a realistic assessment of your climbing ability, weather, and route conditions. However, given all of the potential hazards of mountain travel, safety can not be guaranteed even in the exercise of perfect judgment.

Those lacking climbing experience should seek professional help, and hire a guide, or enroll in a climbing instruction course before venturing into the mountains on their own. The owner and publisher of this web site do not assume any responsibility or liability for your safety. Those who use this information, and those who venture onto mountainous terrain, do so at their own risk.
