  9. Where did you read/learn that he was last on the rope? The article says that the person who tripped was the last person on the rope. Is it SOP for guides to put three inexperienced climbers on the same rope? I do not want to pass judgment, but is there a lesson we can learn from this tragedy? Perhaps a new thread is warranted for that discussion. Condolences to the family and friends.
  10. hi, i've had a stab at a rewrite. The homepage was so confusing. Keep things simple. Make it easy for me to navigate. I had no idea that the yellow highlights were the same as the tabs. This should clear things up. the rest of the site looks ok. white on dark is ok, but you might consider a larger font or a serif font to make it even easier to read. you also might consider adding a page for links only good blog!
