The last report on the accident at cathedral is a good one as we have enough detail to know what happen. But, in general, what should we wrote in an accident report to respect the family and the climber.
On the accident in cathedral, we can imagine the shorter rope going true the device and the longer side pulling the rope true the anchor at the top as the climber felt. You can go outside to the nearest tree, sling a branch and test how fast you fall when you climb with uneven rope. You can use a glove to avoid that your hand burn and see if you can stop your fall when the rope go true the device. Instead of a glove, you can use a prusick on the rope and make the same test. In this really case, you will understand that rapping with a prusick under the device is more like using a glove than a second safety. But in both case, it will do nothing to save your life.
For that reason, I thing that the most important point when you report an accident, it is to wrote, in your argumentation, the major point: the rope going true the device. So, as an introduction, you can describe a brief history of people like you and me going to climb. In the argumentation, it is very important to describe the real danger: ď two uneven rope, the shorter going true the device and pull true the anchor and fall with the climberĒ Finally, in the conclusion, you can make suggestion to prevent the accident. Coiling the rope with both end at the same time, in two part. You throw the middle part first and the end part after, as your partner hold the middle of the rope, middle found when you coil both side of the rope togetherÖisnít it better than making a knot and deciding that, today, I donít need it and make a mistake?
I think that guideline most be tag at the beginning of this section.
