With regard to route-setting, the point at issue is not that we might create dangerous routes – there’s no such thing on a climbing wall.

It’s that the act of route-setting is outside normal wall usage and constitutes “work at height” as defined under WAHR. So they’re strictly correct in preventing us from doing it. In fact, if a hold works loose we should leave it and bring someone in to tighten it, a “reductio ad absurdam” I know, but that’s the way it may go.

We do our best to stay safe when route-setting but holds and tools do get dropped etc. so there is a real hazard.
