That's all fine and dandy, but if the unthinkable were to happen you would have to take full responsibility. It isn't the party above knocking rocks off, it isn't the sandbagging first ascentionist, it isn't the stoned hippie whose glue didn't set. It's the parent who made the informed decision to introduce their child to a dangerous pastime. These are all known risks which are accepted by climbers (along with the fact that a certain percentage of participants will be killed or injured).
