Is climbing safe? As our acknowledgment of risk forms and every book on the topic will tell you, climbing has inherent dangers; it is an adventure sport. If you are well trained and are using the correct equipment and technique, your safety level is dramatically increased. At the Canyons Rock Climbing, safety is our number one concern. If you have questions or concerns about your safety, we will be happy to talk to you and answer any questions.
