QUT and affiliates sued for $8m Kangaroo Point 5-Jun-2017 At 7:37:47 PM JMK
Re odh scenario I apportion 100% fault to the belayer. the climber should be able to just bomb on to the rope as the unexpected happens.

In saying that I, as an increasingly cautious person would check first that my belayer has me. This is akin to taking off at traffic lights that have turned green . You should be safe and any person running a red light and hitting you would be 100% at fault. This would not help you however as you would still be dead so maybe check, if feasibl, for a speeding car.

thus default should be keep climber on belay and climber trust that is the case, but perhaps check if feasible if you are on belay, before bombing onto the rope as being dead would suck.

Note the key words feasible and default
