What's the appropriate level? What percentage of young climbing kids are you willing to see maimed or killed?......cause that is what risk means.

I have a feeling they're not talking about proximity flying type risk though. You want kids to be able to step over the line occasionally and not have lifelong injuries as a result. Climbing is a shitty teacher. People tend to go years or decades with zero consequences, then five seconds of inattention leads to a permanent limp.

>I still feel really sad whenever I hear Tito's name. Tragedy.

Well, with more kids getting into climbing, you'll get used to it soon enough.
