CAUTION: Mountain travel of any kind carries significant risks to the participants, and travel on rock, snow, and ice carries inherent dangers that can lead to injury or death. Every situation is unique and calls for use of different techniques and different equipment. The choices of techniques and equipment must be made in the context and location where they will be applied, and those choices require a careful assessment by each climber. Therefore, AAI assumes no responsibility or liability for your use of the suggestions offered in the articles that follow or made by guides and staff. AAI offers tips to assist climbers in their efforts to expand their skills and the effectiveness of their climbing, but makes no assertion regarding the appropriateness of choosing a particular technique or piece of equipment in any given circumstance. You must make your own assessments and decisions, and you assume all risks in applying these techniques and using this equipment.
