Accident at Mt Buffalo 15-Jul-2015 At 10:18:02 AM capt_planit
I hate to defend the uni club but I find that lumping these two incidents as "abseiling accidents" and then using them as evidence of an unsafe learning enviroment to be somewhat disingenuous.
I would prefer to see the most recent accident catalogued under "stuck rope" rather than "abseil". Lets face it, when the rope gets stuck best practices frequently are forgotten. I'm sure many members have resorted to rather dodgy techniques to get their life-line back, and felt pretty happy when they didn't bring a rock down on their heads or wind up with a chopped rope.

I hope the powers that be review these data after the media circus dies down and make the right choice for students who enjoy the outdoors. I'm not sure I've seen enough evidence to suggest that the club is any more unsafe than others.
