Trying to explain why this seemed like a good idea to the judge/jury looks like a difficult task to me.

I'm sure there are kids who are athletically capable of ice climbing at age 7. But making sure they are being safe at all times seems incredibly difficult and stressful. Could it be done safely.. probably..would that be fun for anyone involved.. doubt it.

popping yourself in the face with the backend of the tool, bashing your knuckles, scraping a point across your calf..Who hasn't done that? How do you protect them from sloppy tool handling and sharp points when 10 ft up or more? Good for kids?.. naaah
