CLIMBING GONE WRONG fails vol.2 [FailForceOne]

Published -


Compilation of climbing, rock climbing, ice climbing fails, and close calls. 

What are some essential training and equipment that climbers should have before attempting a climb?

Climbing is an adventurous sport that requires strength, determination, and an indomitable spirit. Climbers climb mountains, rock faces, ice, and everything in between. However, with every climb, there’s an inherent risk of injury or even death due to equipment failure, poor judgment, or just plain bad luck. Here are some examples of climbing gone wrong fails, highlighting the importance of proper training, equipment, and risk assessment.

One of the most infamous climbing gone wrong fails is the 1996 Everest disaster. Eight climbers from different expeditions died during a brutal storm that hit the mountain. The tragedy was a result of various factors, including bad weather, flawed decision making, and equipment failure. The accident exposed the dangers of commercialization of mountain climbing and the pressure to reach the summit at any cost.

Another example of climbing gone wrong fail occurred in 2017, when a rockfall killed a climber and injured another on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. The climbers were halfway up the rock face when a massive chunk of granite fell, causing chaos and destruction on the route. The incident highlighted the unpredictable nature of rock climbing and the importance of wearing a helmet and being vigilant at all times.

In 2019, a renowned American climber, Brad Gobright, died while descending from a cliff in Mexico. Gobright and his climbing partner, Aidan Jacobson, were simul-rapping, a technique where two climbers descend on opposite sides of a rope. However, the rope reportedly malfunctioned, and Gobright plummeted to his death. The accident underscores the importance of proper equipment, careful planning, and having an experienced partner.

In 2020, two experienced climbers, Jess Roskelley and David Lama, died while attempting a difficult climb in the Canadian Rockies. The climbers were hit by an avalanche while ascending a challenging route on the east face of Howse Peak. The tragedy serves as a reminder that even the most seasoned climbers can fall victim to nature’s unpredictability, and caution is essential when venturing into the mountains.

These examples of climbing gone wrong fails highlight that no matter the level of experience, climbing is an inherently dangerous sport with inherent risks. Climbers must always prioritize safety and risk assessment above all else. Proper training, equipment, and having an experienced partner are vital to mitigate the inherent dangers and ensure that every climb is a success. Knowing when to call it quits and retreat is a sign of wisdom and maturity in the climbing world. Always remember that the most important thing is to come back alive from the mountain.
