“This paper looks at accidents in Australian climbing, in all its forms, over the past fifty years. An analysis of some of the data is provided. The seriousness of easier climbs is scrutinised and the issue of helmet wearing commended. The continual noting of poor gear placement and pieces ‘pulling’ as well as the issue of rock fall are all reported on. At the end of the day the information presented may assist many to develop a keener interest in minimising climbing accidents and preserving our basic rights to enjoy an adventurous sport that affords so much pleasure to so many.” Click here to read more.
