Abseiling near miss 19-Jul-2020 At 6:27:49 AM groveller
Climbing Tiptoe ridge yesterday with a beginner yesterday in a party of 3. When abseiling off pinnacle, beginner said he would be ok rapping off the short 3 meters. When going over lip, he didn't move his feet and fell headfirst but still held onto rope. Almost immediately he rectified situation and was ok.
Lessons learnt.
1. Abseiling even short distances is dangerous.
2. Beginners can be overconfident.
3. There was another rope and I could have had a safety line attached to lower him if needed.
4. The wind was howling, it was about 10 degrees and it was getting late. On reflection this caused me to be in a rush to get off the pinnacle.
5. Other climber at base could have Fireman belayed just in case.
Thankfully have learnt these lessons without any adverse outcomes.
