I don't think that's a big concern. To put it into perspective, it's a rare weekend when the Stawell-based SES and AV aren't carrying a tourist out of the Pinnacle with a broken ankle. Combine those with a fair number of people who get to the base of McKenzie Falls and have to be carried back up (NOT fun) and the number of climbing-related accidents is insignificant.

My main concern is that climbers/boulderers are a relatively small community so every accident has a big impact. I suspect and hope that the number for this year is just a statistical blip - the number of climbing accidents requiring emergency services in the Grampians is so low that there isn't really a baseline.
