Depends on you

Mountaineering techniques develop and vary from a few fundamental techniques, as an introductory text, The mountain Climbing school Manual presents basic techniques. readers will develop their own variations of the techniques as they gain experience.

besides advanced techniques, wider aspects of mountaineering safety are not covered like the most common way to die in the wilderness, hypothermia. the Mountain Climbing school Manual introduces only a single aspect of climbing safety, mountaineering techniques. prospective mountaineers should expect years of learning subjects like alpine weather, snow and rock conditions, route finding and first aid.

accidents resulting in injury and death do occur in outdoor activities. Mountaineering, hiking and other outdoor activities are dangerous. responsible cumbers accept the risk of such activities and undertake them on their own responsibility.

before joining an activity, responsible cumbers know the hazards and judge for themselves if they have the knowledge, practiced skills and physical condition to participate safely.

before leaving for an activity, responsible cumbers let someone know their planned destination, route and return time.

During an activity, responsible cumbers participate as safe team members by remaining alert for, and vocal about, potential dangers.

in regard for the benefits of climbing with others, responsible cumbers release other participants from claims that might arise on account of a negligent act or failure to act.

in case of accident, illness or other incapacity, responsible cumbers understand they will pay their own evacuation and medical expenses, whether or not authorized by themselves.
