Students of the Strong Mind Course must accept that:
Safety in climbing
You accept all responsibility for your psychological and physical safety when carrying out any of the exercises, practices and tools suggested in the course.
There is an inherent risk in all forms of climbing.
If you do the fall practice correctly you should be working towards reducing risk in climbing, however, accidents can always happen.
If you want to take part in the lead falling part of this course you must be a competent climber who can lead climb and belay safely and only chooses partners who can belay them safely.
If you want to take part in falling on top-rope you must be a competent top-rope climber who can belay safely.
If you want to take part in the bouldering part of this course and you want to do this outdoors you need to understand how to assemble crash pads to protect your landing and understand what it means to give a good spot.
This course focuses on the psychology around climbing rather than instructing you around rope, belaying, spotting and crash pad skills.
Although this course seeks to empower you with tools to assess risk and psychological challenge, we cannot be there to check what you are doing so you must take personal responsibility for all your decisions in climbing even when related to the activities discussed in the course.
If you have any mental health disorders please consult with a mental health practitioner before taking part in this course.
If you are not happy with the course after 7 days we will refund you the full amount of the course.
We ask that you commit to the course during this time and engage with all the aspects of the course.
We may wish to use some of your posts in Slack and the discussion to talk about the course with future students. Please contact us if you do not wish for us to do this. We will not display your full name in these posts unless you agree to consent.
