The kid was leading a climb, not playing tiddlywinks. You notice how society doesn’t let kids drive or operate industrial machinery?
Part of the deal with climbing is that it's inherently dangerous. If you don't want to accept the possibility of getting killed, don't do it. If you don't want to accept the occasional kid getting killed, don't let them do it.
I feel sorry for the poor prick who was belaying other people's kids for little or no money, got ambushed by some death draws which nobody would notice, and is now hung out to dry by a bunch of fuchwads who think climbing is safe.
