Warning. The crags in Outdoor Park Garda Trentino have been bolted to the highest safety standards and are inspected periodically, but always remember that these are natural crags accessible to all but subject toa variety of different forces: atmospheric conditions, earth movement and human activity, any of which may cause deterioration of fixed gear and the condition of the rock itself.
In order to climb as safely as possible, it is essential you follow these safety guidelines:
- Always wear a helmet when climbing or standing at the base of the crag to protect yourself fromfalling rocks or unprotected falls.
- Before you begin a climb, check each other’s safety gear: harness,quick-draws, knots and position ofthe belay device.
- It is not a playground, so unless they are climbing, keep children away from the foot of the crag.
- Clip on to all the bolts along the route. Falls are always possible even on the easiest sections.
- Never climb unsecured beyond the first anchor.
- Always lock the screwgate carabiner at the lower-off point.
- Only stand at the base of a crag as long as strictly necessary for climbing or belaying and, even then, avoid standing directly beneath those climbing and alwaysbe aware of climbers on the crag.
- Always check the condition of protection material on the climb, especially the wear and tear onlower-off carabiners. If in doubt, double up with a carabiner of your own. It’s better to sacrifice somegear than take a potential risk.
- If you come across any potential danger or anomaly please contact us to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org; so we can send experts to assess the situation and carry out any work needed.
- If you go bouldering, use a crash pad and spotting techniques, make sure that the fall area is level andfree of danger. Limit the height of the climb according to the landing terrain and in any case never gomore than 4 metres above the ground.
ANYBODY WHO CLIMBS IS AWARE OF THE INHERENT DANGERS INVOLVED AND DOES SO AT THEIR OWN RISK.
- Use appropriate protection gear and make sure you know how to use it first.
Remove any rings or bracelets which could cause serious injury if they got caught on the rock.
When top roping always check that the screwgate carabiner at the top anchor is screwed shut.
Only climb with an expert unless you have plenty of experience in the use of safety gear and techniques.
Kids learn from you:
even on the easiest routes make sure to wear your helmet, never go above the first bolt without clipping on and clip quickdraws onto all the bolts as you climb.
