Participation statement
I am over 18 and I accept that mountaineering, hill walking and rock climbing are activities with a danger of personal injury or death, and I wish to participate in them voluntarily. I am aware that other members of the club that are perceived to be ‘in charge’, or even just leading a walk, are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, are not regarded by the club nor regard themselves as ‘technical experts’, but are amateur climbers, walkers or mountaineers with some experience who are happy to impart their knowledge and that any advice given be viewed with this in mind by the recipient.
