Climbing is a dangerous pastime that can seriously damage your health! Details of climbs recorded in these webpages, together with their grades, reference to in-situ or natural protection, and locations, are made in good faith having been compiled from first ascent descriptions and old guidebook information. Very few of them have been checked recently for accuracy, and descriptions, grades, and, above all, stars, should be treated with extreme caution. Unfortunately climbs can change; holds fall off, rock becomes dirty, in-situ gear deteriorates or disappears. Even a minor alteration can have a dramatic effect on the grade or seriousness of a route. It is therefore essential that climbers judge the condition of any route before committing themselves. The contents of this website are believed to be correct. However, neither the FRCC nor its members and their friends involved with its production, can be held responsible for any omissions or mistakes, nor liable for any personal or third party injuries or damage, howsoever caused, arising from its use.
Fell walking, whilst being very pleasurable can also be dangerous if bad weather or winter conditions occur. As with climbing, the correct level of experience and equipment is essential to the safe enjoyment of our Mountains. The ability to navigate safely in all conditions is a very necessary skill. The great majority of mountain accidents occur to fell walkers and are usually the consequence of going on the hills without the required experience and equipment. Details of walks recorded in these web pages, are made in good faith having been compiled from direct experience of the walks. It is essential that walkers judge the weather and fell top conditions any route before setting out. The contents of the walking pages in this website are believed to be correct. However, neither the FRCC nor its members and their friends involved with its production, can be held responsible for any omissions or mistakes, nor liable for any personal or third party injuries or damage, howsoever caused, arising from its use.
In this claims-conscious age, climbers are recommended to obtain suitable insurance cover. The BMC now provides third party liability cover for members and members of affiliated clubs.
