I have to say that core strength trailing is CRITICAL to solving back problems. simply getting a fusion or cortisone shots or whatever will NOT resolve the problem. you need to strengthen your core muscles to enable you to support yourself properly. without that you will end up back in the same place as you are now sooner or later. finding a good PT person and embracing the body work is really really important.

SO, I have really appreciated the replies from everyone, I have been to MGH, BID in Boston, had more than a few discussions with my primary care doc who is a great and knowledgeable doctor, investigated information myself, and you can NOT believe how some docs will diss other hospitals or other docs to get the sale, and the worst doc/was the one who immediately wanted to fuse 4 of my disc's. My primary doc and a psychiatrist that I have seen have both told me that the body, including the discs will heal themselves if they are not too far gone, the cortisone shots help to shrink the disc's to allow ME to strengthen my back muscles through exercise and pt which is the path that I am on. I  have been doing heavy construction work since I was 17, now 64, and have paid the price for doing so but that was how I made my living. I got out climbing once this winter with Pat, a really good friend and did std. route, I would have liked to climb more, and wanted to but held off, I've been walking the trails at the local state park around the ponds and doing my exercises and GOD willing I'll be ice climbing next season, Thank you for all the advice you have given me, Don

Just a caveat to those who think that it is ok to pass, cut off etc. a party, you may be responsible for any falls or injuries the party below incurs resulting in financial remuneration as dictated by the courts. Further some zealous magistrate may seek criminal charges along the lines of reckless endangerment. Just a fair warning.

Have fun but, be careful out there.

I doubt it.  Climbing is inherently dangerous

Why does that matter?

The real question is do we owe a duty to other climbers not to drop shit on them?

If so, then if we violate that duty either intentionally or unintentionally and someone gets fucked up, well, we are liable under our current tort laws.

Plenty of examples in climbing of people suing the shit out of others for negligence.

"A bolt breaks in Australia resulting in the death of a climber and a lawsuit is pending, a commercially-guided expedition doesn’t summit and the operator is sued for breach of contract, a climber is injured during a fall and sues the climbing gym, a guide is sued after the alpine ice he’s leading dinner plates causing him to fall and pull out the belay anchor resulting in the death of his client, belayers and the manufacturers of the belay devices are sued for not catching a fall, a climber dies during a descent in the Tetons and the National Park Service is sued for a failed search and rescue response."
