A quote from the editorial: "No one goes out to a sport-climbing crag carrying the acceptance that they may die that day. No one."

This to me is utter bollocks. Sport climbing is notionally safer than other styles, but every single time you tie in and step off the ground you put yourself at risk. It may help with the climbing to put the thought of decking out of your mind, but the risk will always be there - something the number of accidents that happen otherwise sanitised crags will continue to attest to.
