      Sad. A simple climbing "diaper", a short piece of webbing and a carabiner would most likely have saved her life. All for less than $20.

    3. E Older says:

      Stupid people do stupid things. No value of their own life. Hope it was worth it honey.

      Park Ranger says she was scaling and FOX says she was hiking…hmmm. Report the news properly.

      I climbed it around a month or two ago and I was about halfway up and the pole came out of the rock. Something should be done to make this safer or honestly it would be sad to see but they should shut it down. It is way to dangerous right now.
