I accept that mountaineering activities are hazardous by their very nature. I understand that Snowdonia Climbing staff and instructors employed by them, are appropriately qualified and experienced to run the activities and will at all times proceed in a manner to minimise the risk of injury, and I accept that however unlikely, accidents and injury could occur.
