my point remains ...

ever try to cook a recipe off what someone posts up on the forums ... miss a step? or think you got it right when you really didnt without someone who knows what they are doing correct you on the spot? ... you get burnt unsavory cake ...

miss a step when someone is posting something on a climbing safety related matter? ... youre dead, or your partner is

theres no substitute for someone who knows what they are doing show you in person and being able to correct you if needed (and NO ONE i know off, including me, didnt need correction when they first started something new)

i see it all the time where people set up anchors, tie knots, do multi, belay or rap incorrectly because they "learned it off the internet"

a quick few minutes of real life instruction usually solves the issue

IF you must rely on the internet for safety advice ... do so at the websites of the climbing mags, UIAA, UKclimbing article, manufacturers sites, BMC or at the very least those of accredited guides, etc ..

not the intraweb forums where people are more concerned about "being right" or their own intraweb agendas as you can see in some of the current threads ..
