My response was also in complete respect for the death of Brian and at a loss as to what was actually interesting with regards to the link.
The link you posted was really inappropriate IMO and has nothing to offer to making this thread a learning one, finding a possible remedy to what may have led to the fatality and in regards to not having this situ occur again to any other climber.
That was my point in posting what I did.
Nothing to do with you Squishy. So please do not turn this into another fiasco of sorts that you may actually be seeking.
Safety is paramount out there. How we all do things affects others and the future of this lifestyle and where we are allowed to play/climb.
We almost lost access to a local crag due to a very similar situ, three years ago.
Just as COZ posted on ST, I agree that somethings need to remain standardized.
My point from the beginning.
No disrespect ever intended to anyone.

Everything. This was one person's response. I'm sure others would have reacted somewhat differently to each phase of the event. I figure a professional medical responder would have been more "clinical" about the situation. I sense this guy wished he weren't there to have to try to figure out what to do to help. There was a lot of compassion and emotion he was trying to control so that he could help the victim but was having a hard time with it. He's obviously trying to come to grips with his trauma by writing about it.
I can honestly buy that.... 100%
