Participation Statement

Participation in outdoor activities such as hill walking, climbing and cycling (on or off road) is inherently risky. You should only get involved if you are personally prepared to accept these risks and recognise that you may be exposed to potentially life-threatening situations. You are responsible for your own actions and involvement, and must be aware that your actions may affect the health and safety of others, both members and non-members, and act accordingly.

"Hard+" Events

Primarily these would be walks (including scrambling) in high mountains and/or in winter conditions, but could also be very challenging cycling events.

They can be one-off day events, or be part of a Club weekend, or a longer trip away.

On such events the risk is inherently greater.

Leaders of these events are expected to give clear instructions to club members before such an event, outlining not just the route and expected conditions, but also the maximum number of people that will be able to join them.

Leaders should ensure that they are comfortable with the ratio of 'experienced' to 'less-experienced' members attending the event. They need to be able to explain to members, in a considered and reasonable manner, why they may not be able to take them on the event, at that particular time.

If you wish to attend these events you need to have the required equipment and have some experience in how to use it. You need to be prepared to discuss your experience and expectations, in a considered and reasonable manner, with the event Leader, and accept any judgement they may make, either before or during the event.

The Club encourages members who wish to participate in such events to attend suitable courses in winter skills.

The Club has no liability for members attending such events and it is imperative that you ensure that not only are you suitably skilled and experienced, but that you have personal insurance to cover you for all activities that you participate in.

Climbing

Beginners are welcome by arrangement with the event organiser, in order to ensure that there is an adequate ration of experienced to new climbers.
