    Una lastima, debe en adelante exigirse el pago de un seguro de vida para quienes intervengan en estos deportes, organizado por empresas. Debe abrirse el lugar que en Monterrey se usaba para este propósito, la Municipalidad Provincial de Huaraz, debe expropiarlo en la modalidad de uso, es decir, que se adecue el lugar para la practica de escalada en roca, cuando se requiera, pudiendo los propietarios darles el uso -cochera- habitual en el tiempo restante. Haciendo las mejoras arquitectónicas necesarias.
