I’ve always said try to place enough gear to not hit the ground or a ledge if your last piece fails. Not always possible. I also explain why I run it out on easier terrain.
I don't make a post against what you did. You can be a very good guide or partner, I never climb with you. I talked about a tendency to gain experience from anterior success on making an hard move (bolt, sue a crack and mountain). It is a technique that they use in school and because the parents need zero danger, the parent create a situation where they place there child in danger.
I promote the tendancy to gain experience from anterior success on seing the dange and learn to avoid it. To see the danger, you most be in a situation where you are or feel in danger. A good guide will make you feel that you are in danger or make you think about that danger and, as a student, you will want to learn the technique to be safe.
I am not going to say that it is a good think to humiliate a women who take a hike to be in good shape and was trap like a mouse because the wind was in her back as she go and in her face when she come back. She made a mistake and many people will be more carefull about that problem because we learn from her mistake. I was in the same situation of her as I slept in the wood in mt washington between a ridge with 80 to 100 miles per hour wind and the alpine garden without any protection.
