Too many climbers have died getting down: take care.
Recently in the news:
A man has died in an abseiling accident at North Rocks.
The man was later found dead on the side wall of a dam, police said.
The man, who is yet to be formally identified, is believed to be aged in his 20s.

Jeez, he must have f*&#ed up in a major way to die on the side of that particular dam!! : o Are they implying that he was still on his ropes?? It's a tempting structure to ab off, *if you're into that sort of thing*, but he must have had a serious SNAFU if he didn't get to the bottom... : /

As always - please take care what you speculate on a public forum when regarding deaths or serious accidents. It's a small world out there - friends, family, rangers and the media all read this.

I dont know anything about this particular case.
But I know that my guardian angel has occasionally had some work at the end of a long day climbing. Or when I'm not paying attention etc.

Note to all the moderatette is very touchy about comments made about absquealer goo. So no funny stuff or you may get a you are very naughty message.
