4175.02 Legislative findings.

The general assembly finds that the sport of rock climbing is practiced by a large number of Ohio citizens, provides a wholesome and healthy family activity that should be encouraged, promotes physical fitness, and significantly contributes to the economy of this state. The general assembly further finds that the sport of rock climbing contains both inherent and other risks that can be hazardous to climbers and that those other risks should be managed. Therefore, defining duties and responsibilities of climbing facility operators and climbers is in the public interest.
