Climbing Accident Analyse

November 29, 2011

Two American alpinists film themselves after having a serious accident while iceclimbing in Wyoming. Very impressive footage (warning: profanity and graphic images) showing how these two buddies perform a solid self rescue and manage to come down alive.

Professional iceclimber Will Gadd analysed the accident: “While I think these guys did make some errors, pretty much every climber I know has made the same or worse errors. I definitely have. But I have seldom seen such a solid self-rescue effort; they cleaned up their own problem. This discussion is part of the path forward for anyone who really climbs and thinks about climbing”.
