I've sent my email and was already a member of the ACAQ.

I believe the problem is that rescues atributed to climbers are actually bushwalkers getting into trouble when they get lost or otherwise on steep terrain, they are immediately branded climbers, this beaurocratic over-reaction seems a ham fisted foray at making sure that supposedly experienced climbers only (by virtue of membership and insurance) are actually allowed access to these areas.

The problem: it's inexperienced day walkers creating the majority of problems and most climbers being free spirits and regulation being contrary to their attraction to climbing to start with!
