Given that this is in the "accident and incident analysis" section, some thoughts / questions that come to mind:

a) eye witnesses report that a hold broke; can anyone elaborate on this detail?

b) eye witnesses climbing Johnny Vegas saw Heather Gray fall report that the fall occured on Johnny Vegas; which route, pitch and how far into the pitch was Heather Gray? [edit to fix my mistake]

c) did Heather pass up reasonably available pro which could have made a difference?

Note: virtually all traditional leaders have passed up available pro from time to time despite significant run out.

My heart goes out to those close to Heather Gray.
