So there's this newsletter called Weekend Whipper that Rock and Ice puts out.
How about a local version. Not sure we can do a whipper in SA every weekend. but maybe one a month?
Here is the first one to kick things off.

Tuesday, 6 August 2014, 7 pm. CityROCK, Obz.

Pity the idiot belayer didn't have the decency to come over and apologise to the lady who was hit by the climber. What happened to chivalry!?

That's ridiculous! :shock: :shock: :shock: Almost as bad as another incident I wont mention ;-)
Looks like he fell whilst trying to clip, certainly a LOT of slack floating around. The lady who nearly got squashed should not be belaying in the middle of the room, stand close to the wall under your climber ppl please! :!:

Climb indoors - it's safe?

If anybody is looking for me I'll be outdoors where the chances of getting by flying people are reduced (unless Jeb Corliss is around)

Well, he would have landed on a nice soft young lady to break his fall. :roll:
