Fall at Cliffhanger climbing gym 28-Mar-2007 At 12:50:32 PM cliffhanger
The facts that we have are:

Climber was Leading (at about the 10 mt mark)
Climber fell before clipping the q'draw
Climber took a ground fall
All Equipment (theirs and ours) was in working order
Climber and belayer were taken to the Alfred Hospital in a stable condition.
(Only family members can get updates on patient status.)

We appreciate the efforts of those customers that responded and assisted (Bill and Peter) and our staff who did everything by the book.

I believe our sprung floor reduced the injuries that could have been possible if the climber had hit concrete or "rock".

It would also be appreciated (by us and the cimbers involved) if people didn't speculate what did and didn't happen in this accident, but rather wait for the climber and belayer to tell the facts if they so desire to discuss them.
