pomme d'or
« on: March 11, 2012, 06:27:51 PM »
An accident happen in la pomme d'or in Quebec .

La pomme d'or is in a remote area and the climber most be aware that they are alone. You fall, you get out of there by your own. even if a small fall can be fatal at any places, learning rescue techniques and be able to hold or lower a climber is very important. the guy felt at 9h30 in the morning and the call to the police was made at 9 on the evening. I don't know when the climber died, but his death was made at the hospital.

We don"t know the detail and it is easy to critics that the season was not good for climbing or to accuse the knowledge of the climber. I hope that the acccident will bring more concern that climbing is dangerous and learning the good way to climb is not enought: you have to have a good atitude, a good physical condition and an hability to be at the good place at the good moment.

 Ever remember that the danger that you don't see his the more dangerous.

RIP to the fallen. To paraphrase this there is an excellent Appalachian proverb...

ďItís not what you donít know that will get you killed, itís what you think you know, that just ainít soĒ...

Not sure if this will translate to french well...

from the news, the second have to cut the rope, but he manage to bring the clim ber down. He had is accident at 9h30 in the morning, but was pratically at the top of the cliff (5 hours). he must have began at 2 or three o'clock in the morning. The second yield at other climber low below, but in the tress, you can not understand any thing, they bring the climber down to de lake insteat of stabilize him in a tent at the bottom of the cliff.

Other news... it is the law of the mean (statistic) if he fall, other is a research of adrenaline, etc etc etc

and most of them can not make the difference between french technique and germanic technique!!!
