"If climbing isnít there already, it is fast approaching a perfect storm where there are more climbers than ever who know less than ever about climbing safety."

Great article.
As far as the young kid goes, he was 12 and with adults. He died because the adults FUCKED up!! When you are taking a kid out I don't care how hard they climb you are responsible for thier safety. Kids that age don't think and are clueless, i've raised a kid and guided or coached many others. Hell, most adults fit in that catagory.
