Climber hit by Lightning - Pierces Pass 4-Jan-2011 At 12:11:19 PM mikllaw
I'm glad it ended well, storms are terrifying.
FWIW most storms start after 1 so an early start may see you out of harms way. I remember trying a route in the Grose and getting rained off and being chased up a bald ridge by lightening, like a hobbit in lord of the Rings.

3 questions:
-How was the abseil retreat from P7 to the half way ledge?
-If there was a shelter/bivi site on the half way ledge, would that have helped?
-Did the rescuers know where the climb was ( I spent 20 hours providing the ambos with a grid reference to every climb in the Blue Mountains after Nic's death) and how to get there (did they have a guide book)?
