Disclaimer - Version 2.

If you have read this far then well done! That's all the legal stuff out of the way.

Many years ago when working in a climbing stop in Manchester, being young, hardcore and angry, we found the following, alternative version of the disclaimer far more apt. It is from the Fish website - they make awesome bigwall climbing kit.

"Rock Climbing and any variation of this sport is dangerous. Risk cannot be eliminated.This catalog is not an instruction manual, nor should it take the place of good judgement. The equipment offered in this catalog can kill you. It can kill you on your first day out to the crags with your squeaky clean boots and rope. It can kill a seasoned "Wall Master" with a thousand pitches under his belt.

If living under the threat of death is less than appealing to you, please find another sport. Heads do pop off. Families will lose favorite members. Rescue people will be forced to scoop you into vile green vinyl bags. Remember, you made the choice to climb. Have the guts to take responsibility for what you are doing, be it dying, quasi mutilation, or something as simple as just losing your mind.

If you intend to weasel out of your obligation to be responsible, and see laying blame on us as an alternative to your ineptness, please do not buy our gear. Please, close your wallet and go away now, before it's too late. Bye. See ya. Hasta la Vista."

"Be accountable, Be responsible, Be alive.
Try it sometime.
Have a nice day!
Fish Products"
