CLIMBERS' CODE OF RESPECT
Respect the Dangers
Respect the Environment
Educate yourself about outdoor rock climbing ethics, safety conciderations and how to lessen your environmental impact at the cliff
THE GOLDEN RULE OF ROCK CLIMBING
ALWAYS ASSUME YOUR OWN RISK WHEN CLIMBING OUTDOORS. Land owners, route developers, and other climbers or user groups are not responsible for your safety.
The 'Climbers' Code of Respect' has been created with the help of access groups across Canada, in an effort to unify climbing information and create a national resource for Gym to Rock Transitioning. We would like to extend a huge thank-you for their incredibly valuable feedback and support on this project.

This website is not a replacement for a rock climbing course with a trained professional. Rock climbing is inherently dangerous, always assume your own risk when climbing outdoors and come prepared with the necessary skills.
