It didn't look like the helicopter even picked them up. Saw rescue walking up the trail with, they probably brought them down.

Is this your go-to account now that your CO Climber one was deleted?

ok people, thats it.

We cant self regulate rescues and gumbies, I am going to set up a table in humber park and people will need to pass a tahquitz safety certification course. This includes:

a belay test
rules on when to call for a rescue, i.e. almost never at tahquitz
Lead climbing test
Gear placement test

Any other ideas?

Dude.  Its simple, build a new Climbers Trail Post and put it on a hiking trail...  Hikers would hike to the cliff and can't climb it.  Gumbies will just be lost souls.

It's not a debate. ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET. Unless your bouldering, then, why are you doing that? Or if you don't like wearing a helmet.

My vote is to allow climbing at TZ only if accompanied by professional Rock Guide

False alarm people, it was just a hiker with a jacked knee. But, how did they find the trail without the sign?!?

I heard some 5.12 climbing hotshot kid from LA bumped his head on the second pitch of Human Fright, got a little knot, and cried like a baby. 

What 70's/80's movie is this line from? Hilarious!

Did their knee have a helmet on?

Fake News!  Tradeeeban started this one only to realize it was a false alarm (of sorts)
