Seems to me that if an experienced climber is has an inexperienced belayer, the experienced climber should be held more responsible for F-ups than the noob on belay. Of course, he's not around to point fingers at...but they were in a gym, so what about whoever gave the guy his intro lesson and sent him on his way?

I have no idea how many times the belayer had ever belayed before or what kind of training he had...just saying that if someone is handed a dangerous object and not trained, it's not necessarily their fault if they screw up.
