Participation in club activities

Please note that anyone wishing to participate in activities arranged by, supported by, or facilitated by the club in any way (e.g. arranged using club resources such as the club's online forum, or arranged via a club social event) must read and accept the following participation statement before taking part:

"I accept that climbing, hillwalking, mountaineering and many other outdoor pursuits are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. I am aware of and accept these risks and shall be responsible for my own actions and involvement."

This statement is based on the standard UIAA participation statement and is enshrined in the club's constitution (clause 4.6).

The statement is also included in the declaration on the membership application form that members must sign when seeking to join the club.
