Actually, I heard differently. I heard that when she was found she wasn't clipped in at all. Of course, all of these posts seem to include quite a bit of speculation and rumors, isn't it generally ill-advised to climb alone?

I'm friends with quite a few people who have worked at the wall over the years, and I'm also pretty sure that one of the rules for wall employees is not climbing during their shifts,.

I've also climbed at both of unc's walls and their equipment and facilities have ALWAYS been incredibly well maintained and, for the most part, the staff seem attentive and well trained.

ALSO
In regards to the possibility of the delay of immediate annual service (within a few months of the recommended service window) - if indeed it did fail, then I do not think that the device was properly designed or tested. Safety equipment shouldn't fail that easily.
