Chris, I've never cared that much about the details of these accidents. There's only a couple of ways this could have happened, and it doesn't really matter which one it was.

There is simply a low level risk of catastrophe permeating all climbing, and we unconsciously round it down to zero (because we aren't wired to deal with small numbers very well).
