Majid, will your book add anything to the information already published each year in "Accidents in North American Mountaineering"?

(Am I the only one who thinks it was unnecessary to post the photo of the blood-stained rocks?)

My book will not be published in US and does not contain any reports from accidents in north America but it will be in similar form as ANAM. The ANAM does not cover all accidents nor all climbing accidents ever get reported to AAC. what you read in ANAM is a summery of accidents that was forwarded to AAC from most parks . The ANAM cherry pick most of the reports and publishes them a year later so what you read in 2010 is actually from 2009.

One interesting thing I have noticed is that even with similarity of climbing accident that happens worldwide, the majority of bad habitats that leads to an accident is cultural related.

for example; the North American climbers in general are much more safety conscious that those in Europe and by far safer than those in Mid East, Central Asia and Asia.

I will be very interested majid. I would be interested in statistics in terms of free soloing.

I have always lived by the French saying "all the best climbers die on rappel" and have apended it in the last few years to include "or not on rope at all" given accidents like Bachar and more recently, Chris Chan.
