Quite a discussion about how you should handle a situation when you see other climbers doing something unsafe. Speaking personally, I would appreciate the information. (Of course, I have never done anything unsafe, so this doesn’t apply to me.)
I find it interesting that some of the people involved in this discussion are brave enough to do lead climbing (where they could get physically hurt) but not brave enough to speak up to other climbers (where their feelings could be hurt.) Human nature? Men vs women – at least in this case.?
The commenters talk a lot about exactly how you should approach unsafe climbers and what you should say. And I think a discussion of the process might be helpful. But I also think what gets lost with that, is the reality that no matter how you approach the unsafe climbers or what you say, they may not do what you advise. So if you see something unsafe and it bothers you, speak up and let it go. Oh, and if you think they might fall on top of you, move.
