A NOTE ABOUT SAFETY
Safety is an important concern in all outdoor activities. No book can alert you to every hazard or anticipate the limitations of every reader. Therefore, the descriptions of equipment and techniques in this book are not representations that a particular tool or technique will be safe for you or your party. When you participate in the activities described in this book, you assume responsibility for your own safety. Keeping informed on current conditions and exercising common sense are the keys to a safe, enjoyable outing.
