it's a new season.. here's a quote from bad ass mountaineer Jim Donini, AAC from a recent supertopo thread

Donini says:
I've said it before, I'll say it again- the overall climbing IQ is at an all-time low. Climbers are stronger and climb harder than ever, but, given the way they are introduced to climbing, and given today's climbers preoccupation with technology, accidents and near accidents that should never happen have become commonplace.

remember the protocols, a rope that is not tied off is an accident waiting to happen, recognize and replace worn gear, take a class, know the limitations of fibers, metal, and design, expect to fall farther than you initially planned! know how to rescue yourself and your partner

Here's to accident free climbing. big luvs to all MM
