Mods you should Nuke this thread.

Unfortunately it's been hijacked and is disrespectful to the people affected by a tragic occurrence.
Thanks to PThompson, Richard, Andreas, Niall, Flano and others who put in some useful feedback. It's a shame there's an extra 4 pages of rubbish that followed.
This is a hugely disappointing diatribe in what could have been a valuable discussion.

Me too. Shame it turned to sh#t.

I second that comment. I just hope that none of them reads Chockstone.

I added this to the accident reports thread because I think it's always valuable to keep record (this happened in 2014), to potentially learn more facts and also because I too belong to a University club and this has major implications for all climbing clubs and institutions.
Although not very active, I'm a life member of that club and I drop in now and again to see how things are going. I owe a lot to the club, and to the University in general. Some of the comments made on this forum are beyond juvenile - you should really be ashamed of yourselves.
