  14. Well Mifit you asked my thoughts; My initial reaction was outrage but after reading the 'measured' debate on the forum some good points have been brought up. However nobody, I'm sure, would disagree that the outcome for Chris is awful. With regards to the actions of the 2 individuals concerned was there a 'need' to climb to the top of a mountain or a 'want' and to be honest I don't know, Was the weather forecast for fair and fine sky's , I don't know, where the individuals previously fully healthy or had they both been advised to refrain from any physical exercise again I don't know,
