I think that it is what happen actually. and you have to do some thing because the population can't trust guide any more.
Yup, all guides with years of training and certification and practice teaching are dangerous fellows Please do not trust them...
can't trust and are not trustable is two things. When one said that the client is so stupid that he can not hold a rope...and the client took a guide to learn it??? I don't think that we can trust the guide (note: saying that it is like a solo when you climb with a client is different because it gave the large eventuality that on one hundred client you felt on a bad one).
I rather prefer a discussion on what we can improve to gain the respect of the client/climber/friend than a discussion that you are good and the clients are idiot.
At least two accident in acadia, one in quebec, is it a record of accident with a very low population of climber outside? Low population, the same risky situation, just the knowledge of the climber can explained the numb er of accident recently.
For some time, people try to discourage other to learn to climb in many condition: if there is a little wind on mt Washington turn back. Instead of asking where is the point of non-return and the point where the risk of injury is at the maximum level of the climber (for my part when I can broke a arm or leg, it is acceptable, the colon and the head is not acceptable i.e. I most see the danger for that). But in a gym, with bolt, there is no point of no-return...just try and try and try again to your death.
