Four Great 14er Traverses
Hiking, scrambling, and climbing
The activities described on this web site are potentially dangerous.
Hiking, climbing and mountaineering involve unavoidable risks including the
risk of serious bodily injury and death. All forms of wilderness recreation
have a higher level of risk than many ordinary activities. These risks
include but are not limited to slips, falls, falling objects, equipment
failure, being injured by equipment both properly and improperly used,
automobile accidents, insect and animal attacks, accident or illness in
remote places, forces of nature, effects of weather, rock fall, icefall,
avalanches, falls into crevasses and moats, and other hazards of traveling
in mountainous terrain, as well as accidents resulting from fatigue,
exercise of poor judgment, and inexperience. This web site contains
compilations of verified and unverified hiking and climbing routes
information gathered from many different sources. Although some of this
information is intended to assist climbers in locating and following hiking
and climbing routes, it is neither represented nor guaranteed to be accurate
or complete. Mountain conditions change from day to day and season to
season, rendering any information subject to change without warning. Do not
trust your personal safety to any information presented here. Hiking and climbing
safely depends on your own good judgment, based on experience and a
realistic assessment of your ability, weather, and route conditions.
However, given all of the potential hazards of mountain travel, safety can
not be guaranteed even in the exercise of perfect judgment. Those lacking
experience should seek professional help, and hire a guide or enroll in an
instruction course before venturing into the mountains on their own. The
owner and publisher of this web site do not assume any responsibility or
liability for your safety. Those who use this information, and those who
venture onto mountainous terrain, do so at their own risk.
Additionally, every attempt has been made to record and report accurate times
and statistics for various hikes and climbs. However, none of this
information has been attested to by anyone, not even Arthur Andersen.
