The Climber’s Manifesto

Here are the ten rules which form the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA) Climber’s Manifesto.

  1. Keep in mind the need to protect the mountain environment.
  2. Aspire to leave no trace on the rock face or mountain side when i climb. On bolted climbs i will respect the rock and minimize my impact, adhering to local agreements, ethics and values.
  3. Always carry out what i bring in.
  4. Respect the culture and way of life of the residents of the mountains and valleys i visit.
  5. Act responsibly within the culture of the society and the laws of the countries i visit.
  6. Climb cleanly, embrace fair play and abide by any and all anti-doping rules that relate to me and to my sport.
  7. Help others in need wherever practical, even if it means not reaching a summit or achieving my personal goals.
  8. Use certified climbing equipment and climb within my technical abilities.
  9. Respect other climbers i meet on the mountain, share my technical climbing knowledge, and regard their point of view.
  10. Climb with consideration for other climbers.
