    Well, at least she's using ropes and harnesses properly. Does that make you feel better? :biggrin:

    Not really. She commented to a friend that said "Scary" where she replied, "If you know what you're doing it not; just fun." Being old, I know how being "over confident" can sometimes bit you. :oldcry:

    She's on belay. Do you trust her partner who is on belay?

    I think I would like to counsel kids coming up on that age to strive to know the difference between fear and danger. (Including my fear for their danger :cry:). One problematic conflation between the two occurs when the mind attempts to address fear not by recognizing fear as an aspect of the mind, but by pretending there is no danger via another aspect of the mind, confirmation bias ('I just survived a risk. See, accidents can't happen to me'). Confirmation bias is likewise something that can never be completely waived away, but is countered by constant checks, questioning of assumptions, and investigations of the mistakes of others.

    To my mind, the military is unmatched at risk assessment in this regard, born of necessity I suppose, due to the nature of placing people purposely in danger, not for fun but for maximizing outcomes.

    I like her "I dropped my car keys" expression on the lower picture.
