St Peters Gym accident 23-Sep-2016 At 4:59:39 PM Garbie
Hi Chris
On behalf of everyone at the gym I am relieved to read your message and wish you all the best for a good recovery. Your injuries sound severe but it's good news that you will walk out of there. Yes Sophie King is her name. She is a nursing student and one of our many great staff members who do their best in these circumstances.
Yes I would welcome talking at some stage about this with you. An accident as serious as this has only happened a handful of times in the 23 years we've been in business (not "every few months" as the post above claims) but when it does we always have a review of the gym's policies and procedures. Without talking specifics, belayer error among experienced climbers is very hard to predict or prevent. The staff talk to anyone they see belaying badly, and hopefully that has prevented more accidents, but it can't prevent them all.
Once again on behalf of everyone here, our sympathies are with you, and all the best.
Mike Garben
