    NOTE: Climbing is dangerous!!! Injury and death are possible without proper use of gear and safety practices. If you in anyway feel unsafe, have doubt in your own climbing knowledge/ability/physical state/mental state, have doubt in your climbing partners knowledge/ability/physical state/mental state, or don’t trust the gear/anchors set then don’t climb! It’s up to each individual to make their own judgment calls on the saftey of the climbing scenarios. Organizers are just point of contact persons with like interest in the sport.
