Rapaki Crag Incident

Background

  1. Human error.
  2. I do not think it appropriate that the Judge felt it appropriate to suggest that ‘climbers should no longer lead climb the route’.
  3. I do not think it appropriate that the Judge suggested (decided ?) ‘that the route on ClimbNZ should be updated ‘as should future guidebooks featuring the Rapaki Crag’

This has the potential to set a precedent that has a huge impact on rock climbing.

I wonder if, perhaps post consultation with its membership, the NZ Alpine Club decides to make comment(s) countering the ‘decisions’ of the judge in this case.
