I need to make one thing very clear: The person who fell WAS NOT part of our class! He was taking a lap on one of our ropes. As to why the belayer did anything other than lower him - I believe that because they'd been climbing and then cleaning routes prior to this, perhaps (and this is speculation) "all good" was the communication they had used earlier in the day for off belay? They had climbed 5-6 routes prior that day. Of course there was lots of distraction at the crag with 16 students, so maybe the belayer spaced on the fact that they were climbing on our rope? We were low profile compared to most high school students, but I know we had 5 students on the wall right beside him
when he fell. Im
confused too.We will hopefully find out more precise details soon from the party themselves. Everyone involved in this situation has been shooken up, so getting to the bottom of this is going to take time.
