Dont know about the rest of you but im quite a fan of climbing being safe, I tend to differentiate
climbing from the rest of the "adrenaline junkie" "dangerous sports" because it involves some
intelligence, thinking and thoughtful movement, not just looking 'cool' and 'daring'. If it wasn't 'meant to
be safe' why would anyone do it? It is not rational to want to do something that could potentially kill
you without making it as safe as possible.

Seems to me like the testosterone is flowing in this thread. Nice work "tough guys" your 'cool'. Keep
living 'life on the edge' see how long you last before natural selection kicks in. If it wasn't for people
like Neil Monteith and Safer Cliffs organisations guaranteed there would be more deaths in our beloved
sport. Death aint cool.
