They appeared to be Cadets, but they were not. Leader: Blonde, short hair, almost crew cut, mid 20s.

1. holy flirking shnit.
2. looks like the same picture 3 times?
3. the climber that got stuck, that factor 2d, were they the only person on said anchor? or were other people on it as well?
4. how do you know they werent cadets, if you only heckled them from a distance, and never spoke to them directly?

1. Yes
2. Yes. Picture loaded 5 times, don't know why.
3. 2 people from Team B were on said anchor, and the girl then factor 2'd onto it as they pulled her in and she cut the rope.
4. Rod spoke to the guy on top, and I got a good look at him from about 5 feet. Too old to be a cadet. And, Dawes, Ned and Sue would never train Cadets to act like that.

so what happened after she fell onto the lower anchor while only attached by a sling? how'd they get her to the GT at that point and get her over to the rappel station?

Cripes. Sorry we doubted, it was hard to believe they'd do something that incredibly stupid.

I wonder if this girl knows how close she came to dying?

I think I am going to climb indoors from now on - it's much safer.

Seriously though, this sort of behavior is going to have an impact on access issues that we can't even imagine.

There's been a lot of criticism of the parties, but it's mostly ignorance (benefit of doubt) and not on purpose. Maybe we (and we've been thinking about this for about 2 seconds) should have more of an outreach or education program for first time climbers.

On another note, I fell around the same place and remember twisting in space nowhere near the GT ledge for a while. I was eventually successfully lowered to the GT ledge!!! Then there was that time on Moonlight, but that is another story!

Peace.
