The most dangerous time of your life!!? 17-Mar-2012 At 8:44:37 PM davidn
Fixed the links. Apparently pre-parentheses are fine, trailing parentheses are not.

Agree w/cruze. There aren't very good stats about climbing in general, accidents in specific. Everything is arguable. I would love to see some stats about injury rate per occasion of rock climbing versus bush walking, or rogaining, whatever; I suspect it would show what you say (climbing is more dangerous than strolling about in the bush). Doubt we'll get any soon.

Say what you like about specific exceptions (there are exceptions to every rule, but there's not many reinhold messners out there); if you want to argue that *on average* cragging is more dangerous than mountaineering, show me the data. I promise I'll be persuaded if you can.
