All true...

It's not the unknown dangers so much (eg rockfall), it's more the failure to appreciate the more obvious dangers, as in:

And a helmet does not protect you from climbing dangerously, or worse, from falling to your death by failing to clip in when getting dressed for a climb while standing on a 20cm wide ledge above a 40m drop. In this case, these were experienced climbers, I was asking myself if my failure to point out the obvious would haunt me forever if the worst was to happen. I decided in the end, that it wouldn't.
