Ms Louise Pinchbeck jumped approximately 4-5ft from the bouldering wall and sustained her injury when she landed.
The recent court ruling is expected to result in an award of up to £100k.
Joint Craggy Island Managing Director, Rob Mitchell says, "This is one more catastrophic blow for common-sense. Ms Pinchbeck signed our disclaimer which clearly states the dangers associated with climbing. Craggy Island is a premiere climbing centre, the environment here is professional, highly disciplined but also challenging. We are respected in the climbing world for our facilities and these are complemented by robust safety procedures that allow people from all walks of life to try climbing for the first time or advance their professional skills."
Judge Patrick Curran QC said Ms Pinchbeck had to bear one third responsibility for her injuries, whilst Craggy Island bear the rest.
The ruling, covered in the Telegraph Newspaper, has resulted in forum discussion on UKC.
